Kenneth Bae, Mom Meet; Release Not Guaranteed

Ad Feedback

Kenneth Bae, a Korean-American missionary imprisoned in North Korea for the past 11 months, recently got a visit from his mother.

Bae was a tour guide who encouraged prayer for the reunification of South and North Korea. He was arrested last November and accused of "hostile acts" against the government. He is serving a 15 year sentence of hard labor.

His family said Bae suffers from diabetes, an enlarged heart, liver problems, and back pain.

Bae's mother, Myunghee Bee, visited him at a hospital where he has been held since August.

The two embraced and wept during their 90-minute meeting. The visit did not guarantee a release for Bae.
