Ferguson protests expose human rights abuse in US: North Korea
Friday November 28, 2014 8:37 PM, IANS

North Korea Friday lashed out at the US human rights record, saying the ongoing mass protests against racial discrimination exposed severe human rights abuse in the US.

Protests have taken place in about 170 US cities, including Boston, Los Angeles and New York, and at least 196 people have been arrested since a grand jury decided Monday not to indict white police officer Darren Wilson in the Aug 9 shooting death of Michael Brown, an 18-year-old African American.

"This is a clear proof of the real picture of the United States as tundra of human rights where extreme racial discrimination acts are openly practiced," Xinhua cited the official KCNA news agency a North Korean.

The wrongful US standards on human rights have provoked concerns all over the international community, including its allies, the spokesman said.

He added it was ironic that the US, despite being a human rights abuser itself, always gauges other countries' human rights records with its own problematic standards.

Tuesday, a mass rally of 100,000 soldiers and citizens was held on the Kim Il Sung Square in Pyongyang in protest against a UN human rights resolution on NortH Korea, which it claimed was part of a US-led human rights "racket" aimed to bring down its social system.
