FOX’s Jonathan Wachtel, has more on the report’s findings:

A chilling section of the 372-page U.N. report describes the vast network of secret prison camps, where hundreds of thousands of North Koreans are believed to have died from starvation, execution and disease. It is estimated that as many as 120,000 political prisoners are still held. The North Korean regime refused to participate in the U.N. investigation and has rejected the findings as part of America’s hostile policy.
