Irony! Us warns n korean officials over prison camps

The US has a tough message to officials running North Korea’s notorious network of prison and labor camps: We know who you are, and we know what you are doing. US Assistant Secretary of State Tom Malinowski made the remarks on Wednesday, as he shared a stage with two young North Korean defectors to mark international human rights day. A UN commission of inquiry has accused the government of running political prison camps with up to 120,000 inmates in a report alleging crimes against humanity. Malinowski said the UN Security Council will soon discuss the North’s human rights situation, amid a push for a referral to the International Criminal Court.
