North Korea has kidnapped civilians from other Asian countries
The Washington Times reports that former North Korean president Kim Jong Il actually authorized the kidnapping of people from nearby countries to force them to work as spies, in a story by Bill Gertz, link here. Apparently, kidnappings occurred from as far away as Japan, and might happen in China, or South Korea.
The report comes at the same time that attention is focused on North Korea for an attack on Sony over the movie "The Interview".
One could wonder about ISIS pulling the same crimes, particularly perhaps in Turkey. Is it even conceivable that a victim could be transported from western Europe, or perhaps the Balkans, accorss borders? I wonder.
