Jan. 15 ˇ In the far north of North Korea, in remote locations not far from the borders with China and Russia, a gulag not unlike the worst labor
camps built by Mao and Stalin in the last century holds some 200,000 men, women and children accused of political crimes. A month-long investigation
by NBC News, including interviews with former prisoners, guards and U.S. and South Korean officials, revealed the horrifying conditions these people
must endure ˇ conditions that shock even those North Koreans accustomed to the near-famine conditions of Kim Jong IlÝs realm.
