Kim Jong Un May Face Possible Probe For Crimes Against Humanity

A UN expert on human rights in North Korea has asked the United Nations to officially notify North Korean leader Kim Jong Un that he may be investigated for crimes against humanity.

Pyongyang has consistently brushed off the allegations and rejected any responsibility for human rights violations.
