North Korean Defections Up Among Soldiers

Telegraph:

On one stretch of the border, Chinese troops apprehended five North Korean soldiers in May alone.

The defectors have claimed that senior members of the party and the armed forces were stockpiling provisions, another indication that the regime is steeling itself for a military confrontation.

The defectors apprehended by the Chinese were reportedly returned to North Korea, where they face execution.
