UN panel urges international efforts to improve North Korean human rights Updated: 2014-03-18 04:09:26 KST

A special UN commission on North Korean human rights has urged the international community to join efforts to improve rights conditions in the reclusive state.
Reporting to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva Monday, the panel of inquiry said systematic and widespread crimes of humanity committed by the leadership in Pyongyang must no longer be neglected.
The head of commission, Michael Kirby, compared the situation in North Korea to Nazi Germany, the Khmer Rouge's reign of terror in Cambodia and apartheid South Africa.
The Commission wants the North Korean case submitted to the International Criminal Court.
The North Korean ambassador So Se-pyong accused the U.S. and allies of hostile intentions, before walking out in protest.
