    Among those killed was said to be singer Hyon Song-wol, who reached an international audience when she won a Hungarian competition in 2005 and released the hit single “A Girl In The Saddle Of A Steed” – often mistranslated as “Excellent Horse-Like Lady”.

    Executions and torture are daily life in North Korea's prisons - Telegraph

    Executions and torture are daily life in North Korea's prisons

    Former prison inmates who managed to defect and escape from North Korea have given harrowing evidence of the public executions and torture that are daily occurrences within the Communist dictatorship's jails.

    Evidence given in recent days to the first United Nations investigation into human rights abuses in North Korea have included testimony about forced amputations and how a mother was forced to kill her own new-born baby.

    “I thought my whole hand was going to be cut off at the wrist, so I felt thankful and grateful that only my finger was cut off," Shin Dong-hyuk, who was punished for dropping a sewing machine, told the UN commission of inquiry.

    Thanks to a book and his outspoken criticism of the North Korean regime, Shin is one of the most famous defectors, but paid a high price for his own survival.

    Born in captivity in Camp 14, he informed on his own mother and brother to ensure he lived and was forced to attend their executions.

    During testimony nine days ago, Jee Heon-a, 34, described how a mother was forced to kill her own baby.









    “It was the first time I had seen a newborn baby and I felt happy. But suddenly there were footsteps and a security guard came in and told the mother to turn the baby upside down into a bowl of water,” she said.
    “The mother begged the guard to spare her, but he kept beating her. So the mother, her hands shaking, put the baby face down in the water. The crying stopped and a bubble rose up as it died. A grandmother who had delivered the baby quietly took it out.”
    The UN hearings in Seoul have coincided with the release of a new report by The Committee for Human Rights in North Korea titled "North Korea's Hidden Gulags: Interpreting Reports of Changes in the Prison Camps."
    The report says that while two of Pyongyang's six know political labour colonies have been shut down, an "extremely high" number of prisoners remain detained on political grounds, while countless others are unaccounted for or have died in detention.
    "Through this vast system of unlawful imprisonment, the North Korean regime isolates, banishes, punishes and executes those suspected of being disloyal to the regime," the report said. "They are deemed 'wrong-thinkers,' 'wrong-doers,' or those who have acquired 'wrong-knowledge' or have engaged in 'wrong-associations.' "
    The report says inmates "are relentlessly subjected to malnutrition, forced labor, and to other cruel and unusual punishment" while thousands more are forcibly held in other detention facilities.
    North Korea has refused to allow the UN commission to visit its prison camps, denied allegations of human rights abuses and state-run Korean Central News Agency has denounced the investigation as a "scheme" designed to derail improvements in recent weeks between Pyongyang and Seoul.

    ...and all this goes on while one surgical strike by either of the super powers could end this lunacy.

    I don't think it is that easy. The population of North Korea have been brain washed for several generations. They will not welcome attackers as liberators.

    I would not like to see either China or the US to go into North Korea as liberators ... just simply a surgical strike to wipe out the elite leadership and then let the people of North Korea decide their own destiny (which would hope would be to re-unite with the South).

    One problem with that is, the cost to the South for re-unification would be staggering.

    And they know it.

    I dont suppose keeping the massive US military presence there comes cheap ... like re-unifying Germany - any price is worth it in the long run.
