UPDATE: A U.S. State Department spokesperson said it is “deeply troubling” if the reports are true about what has become of the nine North Korean defectors.
“These reported actions are deplorable and in line with the ongoing, systematic, and widespread human rights violations and the treatment of North Korean refugees in the DPRK [Democratic People’s Republic of Korea] documented in the UN Commission of Inquiry report,” the spokesperson said.
