North Korea slams US as racist, human rights 'tundra'

A demonstrator is arrested on November 26, 2014 in LA during demonstrations against a decision by a Ferguson grand jury to not indict a white police officer in the shooting of black teenager Michael BrownCondemned at the UN for rights abuses, North Korea hit back Friday, describing the United States as a human rights "tundra" where racial discrimination flourishes. Citing the protests that erupted when a police officer was not charged in the shooting death of an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri, a foreign ministry spokesman heaped scorn on the notion of "rule of law" in the US. "This is clear proof of the real picture of the US as a tundra of human rights, where extreme racial discrimination acts are openly practised," the spokesman was quoted as saying by the North's official KCNA news agency. His remarks came a week after the UN adopted a landmark resolution urging the Security Council to refer North Korea's leaders to the International Criminal Court (ICC) for possible indictment on crimes against humanity.

UN watchdog slams police shootings of blacks in US

Protesters gather outside the Ferguson Police Department on November 26, 2014 in Missouri after a decision not to charge a white policeman who shot dead black teenager Michael BrownA UN watchdog on Friday slammed police shootings of blacks in the United States, days after a decision not to prosecute a white officer who shot and killed an unarmed black teen sparked nationwide protests. With tensions still running high after Monday's decision by a Missouri grand jury not to charge a white policeman who shot dead 18-year-old Michael Brown on August 9, the UN Committee Against Torture published conclusions from its review earlier this month of the US record. Brown's parents had been present at the hearing on November 12 and 13 in Geneva to discuss their son's case with the committee members. "The committee is concerned about numerous reports of police brutality and excessive use of force by law enforcement officials, in particular against persons belonging to certain racial and ethnic groups," the 10-member committee said in its report.
