4 N. Korean Female Defectors Testify in New York

Four North Korean women who fled the North and are living in South Korea or elsewhere gave their testimonies in New York on Friday.

The four North Korean defectors - Kim Eun-ju, Lucia Jang, Kim Young-sun and Lee Hyeon-seo - attended an event held at the U.S. Permanent Mission to the UN as panelists.

The event was jointly hosted by the UN permanent missions of South Korea, the U.S., Japan, the UK and Australia, timed with the 60th plenary meeting of the UN Commission on the Status of Women(CSW) which opened last week.

The event aims to shed light on the human rights conditions in North Korea.

Some 200 guests attended the event to hear the women's testimonies including U.S. Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power, foreign diplomats and journalists.
