South Korean Government Confirm More Abductees
The South Korean government released data on Thursday which added a further 467 people to the list of those known to have been abducted by North Korea during the Korean War.
The release of the data from the Korean War abductees committee working under the Prime Minister's Office brings the total confirmed abductions of South Koreans during the Korean War to 1,574.
The addition of 467 people follows data released by the same committee in October last year which added a further 399 South Korean abductees to the list.
