Two N. Korean Soldiers Rescued from Raft in the Sea of Japan*

The wooden raft was simply drifting, off Sokcho.

When the two were discovered, they were wearing dark green that looked to be a military uniform and one of the men was suffering from hypothermia to the point that he had lost consciousness.

No word on whether the soldiers plan to defect, although I can’t think of another reason why two soldiers (presuming they are soldiers) would go AWOL and take to an unpowered wooden raft in December.

  1. I hope these two North Korean soldiers are given assylum in the United States. If they are given assylum in this country, they would be in less danger of being killed than if they were given assylum in South Korea.

  2. Probably not. If they were picked up by USN, then they probably would have a legal case. I was the just watching a SBS documentary on NK defectors residing in the US. Some of their family was in SK, and in order to come to US, they went to Mexico to cross the border illegally.

    I don’t think the US see NK defectors as political refugees once they reach asylum in SK.
