Kenneth Bae, detained 2 years in North Korea, releasing book

Kenneth Bae, a U.S. citizen who was detained in North Korea for two years before his release last November, plans to tell his story in a book. “Not Forgotten: The True Story of My Imprisonment in North Korea” will be released next spring.

Bae, a Christian missionary and pastor from the Seattle area, moved to China in 2006. He began leading tours to North Korea in 2010. He was arrested in 2012 while leading a tour group to a special economic zone and sentenced to 15 years of hard labor for alleged anti-government activities.

Bae suffered medical issues in detention. He was freed along with one other American detainee after a mission to the reclusive Communist country by James Clapper, the top U.S. intelligence official.
