North Korea accused its southern neighboring country of kidnapping its citizens. A North Korean spokesman called it 'a terror crime'. The 450+ refugees likely fled through China and Vietnam, before arriving in South Korea. South Korea accepts more than one thousand North Korean refugees each year, who usually arive in far small groups.

A spokesman for North Korea has accused the South of kidnapping its citizens after more than 450 defectors arrived by plane in the space of two days.

The refugees began arriving from an unspecified country on Tuesday on planes chartered by the South, in an operation shrouded in secrecy.

All had apparently escaped through China to the unnamed third country.

Kidnapping indeed. If anybody knows anything about kidnapping it would be NK. How many Japanese citizens have they taken over the years? One has to wonder how many NK's would bail if given the chance? The border between the south makes the Berlin Wall look all warm and fuzzy. Your other option is China which has a policy to repatriate any refuges or asylum seekers. Note that none of the defecting NK seem to want to go back?
