150,000 languish in prison camps

world Updated: Apr 10, 2012 23:42 IST

A new report says more than 150,000 North Koreans are incarcerated in a Soviet-style, hidden gulag despite the government's denial it holds political prisoners.

The report released by the US-based Committee for Human Rights in North Korea is based on interviews with 60 former prisoners and guards. It includes satellite images of prison labour camps.
