      Two South Korean rights activist groups on Tuesday released a list of 254 inmates at North Korea's notorious Yoduk prison camp.

      In a press conference at the Korea Press Center in Seoul, Democracy Network Against North Korean Gulag and the Antihuman Crime Investigation Committee said that of the inmates on the list, 133 were confirmed recently and the other 121 around 2004. The groups compiled the new list based on testimony of four defectors who escaped from Yoduk camp between 2003 and 2005.

      The two plan to bring charges at the International Criminal Court and the UN against the human rights abuses North Korea has committed at political concentration camps.
