Canada church prays for pastor detained in North Korea

TORONTO (Reuters) - Hundreds of friends, parishioners and Korean-Canadian religious leaders gathered at a suburban Toronto church on Monday to pray for a Canadian pastor detained in February by North Korean authorities while on a humanitarian mission.

Rev. Hyeon Soo Lim, 60, leader of the 3,000-member Light Korean Presbyterian Church, was last heard from on Jan. 31. Church leaders say the Canadian government has told them it is working to secure his release.
