Father of defector restaurant worker has died, North Korea says
Pyongyang has long claimed that the 12 workers, who arrived in the South last year, were "abducted"

The father of Ri Ji Ye, one of the 12 female North Korean restaurant workers involved in a mass-defection to South Korea in April last year, has died, North Korea's state-run Uriminzokkiri website said in a video released on Thursday.

The video, entitled “[I] cannot close my eyes with my anger,” shows what is reportedly the last will and testament of Ri Kyong Su.
