More North Korean restaurant workers arrive in Seoul
Defection from Thailand speeded up thanks to S.Korean government's intervention: activist

Seoul’s Ministry of Unification (MoU) on Thursday confirmed three more defectors from a restaurant in China arrived in South Korea, almost two months after the group of 13 defected from a separate restaurant in North Korea's neighbor.

The MoU declined to reveal any additional information. Last week, the ministry confirmed that the restaurant workers had defected to the South via a text message from their spokesperson's office.
