US: North Korea’s vast infrastructure of repression is exposed in new satellite images showing the on-going development of two of the country’s largest political prison camps. In a comprehensive assessment of camps 15 and 16 — known as kwanliso — Amnesty International found new housing blocks, an expansion of production facilities, and continued tight security.

“The gruesome reality of North Korea’s continued investment in this vast network of repression has been exposed. We urge the authorities to immediately and unconditionally release all those prisoners of conscience held in political prison camps and close the camps immediately,” said Rajiv Narayan, Amnesty International’s East Asia Researcher.
