North Korea: American defector in Japan

OhmyNews! runs an in-depth interview with U.S. Army deserter Charles Jenkins, now living on Sado Island after spending four decades in North Korea. “My life is not worth five cents, I know that,” he tells reporter David McNeill. “I don't think they have the nerve to come and get me, but they could assassinate me with a bullet through the head from a distance. But if it happens, everything I have written will come out.”
