UN General Assembly slaps Pyongyang on human rightsThe UN General Assembly condemned human rights violations in Syria, Iran and North Korea and demanded an immediate halt to actions ranging from attacks on civilians to torture and restrictions on freedom of movement.
For the first time, the assembly approved a resolution targeting human rights violations in North Korea by consensus. It expressed serious concern at the North’s “systematic, widespread and grave violations of civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights.” The North Korea resolution also criticized the government’s use of torture, prison camps and persecution of people who attempt to defect.
