But perhaps the big news for the Koreas in general is the smoky room grilling of North Korea's UN Ambassador Ri Tcheul, who had to answer for his country's abysmal human rights abuses. The guy was totally unprepared; at one point it appeared he thought crossing his legs to reveal he wasn't wearing underwear would be enough to distract from his country's murderous ways.
In all seriousness, at one point he said that the families of condemned prisoners were the ones requesting public execution. Scumbag.
