North Korea presents own report on its human rights record at U.N.

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – North Korea on Tuesday offered U.N. delegations its own lengthy report on Pyongyang’s human rights record and repeated its dismissal of a United Nations investigation report released earlier this year as “wild rumours” peddled by “hostile forces.”

The 372-page U.N. Commission of Inquiry report detailed wide-ranging abuses in North Korea, including the use of prison camps, systematic torture, starvation and killings comparable to Nazi-era atrocities.
