N.Korea to Publish Human Rights Report

North Korea says it will publish its own report on its human rights record to counter what it called "lies and fabrications" spread about the country.

The North's official Korean Central News Agency said Monday the report will "show the true picture of the people [of the North] dynamically advancing towards a brighter and rosy future."

The agency said the report will also reveal the "dastardly moves" by the United States and its allies to undermine North Korea's ideology and social system.

The United Nations released a comprehensive report in February that listed human rights abuses in North Korea, including enslavement, torture and murder that amounted to crimes against humanity.
