U.N. Human Rights Chief Warns Of Famine In North Korea

CNN: North Korea’s historic drought expected to cause famine, U.N. says
“…North Koreans are again facing a ‘looming humanitarian disaster in the DPRK,’ or the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, according to the United Nations human rights chief. Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein told CNN, ‘We call for the international community to support the DPRK and help the DPRK in a respect of what is going to be a very difficult famine.’ State media, which usually paint only a rosy picture of life for North Korea’s citizens, have been publishing reports about what they call the worst drought in 100 years…” (Novak, 6/25).
