U.N. Censures N. Korea, Iran on Human Rights

Ad Feedback

A key United Nations committee is criticizing North Korea and Iran for human rights violations.
The U.N. General Assembly's human rights committee passed separate resolutions calling on those countries to end their abuses.

The committee cited North Korea for its use of torture, arbitrary detention, and even the death penalty. Such techniques are often used against Christians who practice their faith despite laws against it.

Regarding Iran, the committee noted the Islamic nation's use of flogging, stoning, and amputations as punishment for crimes such as stealing and adultery.
North Korean and Iranian officials rejected the resolutions.
