Remembering Nate Thayer, investigative journalist and former NK News member

He had a unique ability to uncover elusive information, doggedly pursuing stories about the DPRK to the bitter end

Nate Thayer, an unshakeable investigative journalist who was the last reporter to interview Cambodian dictator Pol Pot, has died at the age of 62 following a number of health problems.

Known best for his award-winning fieldwork from the jungles of Southeast Asia, Nate later developed a strong interest in North Korea and wrote extensively on the country during the final decade of his life.
