Three North Korean women who recently defected from a restaurant in China have arrived in South Korea, the Unification Ministry said Wednesday.
The ministry declined to say how they made their way to Seoul, but sources said they came via Thailand and have been here for a few days.
According to the source, the three women are from Pyongyang. Two were born in 1987 and one a year later.
They had been working in a North Korean restaurant in Shenyang, Liaoning Province but moved to a joint North Korean-Chinese shabu-shabu restaurant in Weinan, Shannxi Province because business was bad.
From there they were able to escape, the source said.
