whose execution for allegedly planning the January assassination of the Army Counter Intelligence Chief, Lt. Gen. Kim Chang-yong. was postponed last month, is reported to have become a Catholic.

Col. Huh won his reprieve following new evidence supplied by his wife two days before the execution date.

The case has been reopened and the execution postponed indefinitely.
