North Korea slams US as racist, human rights 'tundra'

A demonstrator is arrested on November 26, 2014 in LA during demonstrations against a decision by a Ferguson grand jury to not indict a white police officer in the shooting of black teenager Michael BrownCondemned at the UN for rights abuses, North Korea hit back Friday, describing the United States as a human rights “tundra” where racial discrimination flourishes. Citing the protests that erupted when a police officer was not charged in the shooting death of an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri, a foreign ministry spokesman heaped scorn on the notion of “rule of law” in the US. “This is clear proof of the real picture of the US as a tundra of human rights, where extreme racial discrimination acts are openly practised,” the spokesman was quoted as saying by the North’s official KCNA news agency. His remarks came a week after the UN adopted a landmark resolution urging the Security Council to refer North Korea’s leaders to the International Criminal Court (ICC) for possible indictment on crimes against humanity.
