    Some 80,000 people are detained in six concentration camps in North Korea, an activist group claims.

    The Database Center for North Korean Human Rights said at a seminar Thursday that the regime has six labor camps, and about 80,000 people, including young children, are forced to work there for more than 10 hours a day with little rest.

    The organization added that people in the labor camps are given less than 200 g of food and just a small portion of soup per day.
