North Korea on Tuesday sought to discredit a prominent North Korean prison camp survivor who recently admitted inaccuracies in parts of his widely read story about horrific abuse in the country of his birth.
A prominent North Korean defector who has advocated UN action to stop the country`s human rights abuses said on Tuesday authorities have taken his father hostage in a campaign to discredit his story of survival and escape from a prison camp.
Al-Qaeda is training hundreds of British people fighting in Syria to become jihadists and urging them to carry out attacks when they return home, according to an interview with a defector published in today`s Daily Telegraph.
North Korea Wednesday denied that it
had sent spies to kill a high-profile defector and vocal
critic of its leader Kim Jong-il, accusing South Korea of
fabricating the case to stoke hostilities against Pyongyang.
