In act which cements North Korea as the most hostile country towards Christianity, North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un has reportedly ordered 33 Christians to be executed for contact with a missionary.

The Daily Mail reports that Kim Jong-un has charged the 33 with attempting to overthrow the government, the same accusation that lead to the execution of the North Korean leader’s uncle, Jang Song-thaek, and all of Jang’s relatives.

The missionary aides will be put to death in the cell of the State Security Department.

According to the Christian Post, North Korea aired interviews with five of their countrymen at a press conference on Feb. 27 who claimed they met with Jung-wook and accepted money from him and other South Korean agents.
