North Koreans found adrift in Japan


Japan’s coast guard patrol ship tows a wooden boat, holding nine people claiming to be North Korean asylum seekers, after it was spotted adrift on Sept. 13 in waters near the island of Nanatsu, western Japan. The nine - three men, three women and three children - told authorities that they are from North Korea and want to go to South Korea, according to Japan’s Kyodo News. [YONHAP]
