Amnesty International commissioned analysis of satellite images of political prison camps (named kwanliso) in North Korea: namely kwanlisos 15 and 16. The images show that instead of heeding the growing calls for closing its political prison camps, repression by the North Korean authorities has continued and the prisoner population appears to have increased. Hundreds of thousands of people – including children – are held in political prison camps and other detention facilities in North Korea. Kwanliso 16 is the largest political prison camp in North Korea. A former security [...]
