North Korea says its diplomats were 'mugged' at New York airport

  • Added:  2 months ago
  • North Korea is claiming its officials were "mugged"... and had a diplomatic package forcibly taken from them by U.S. authorities, at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport.
    North Korea's state media says the diplomats were returning from a Friday UN conference, on the rights of persons with disabilities, when the alleged incident took place.
    The North branded the U.S. as a "lawless gangster state" over the episode... adding that the international community needed to seriously reconsider, whether New York City was a suitable host for the UN General Assembly.
    The White House and the State Department had no immediate comment, although tensions between the U.S. and North Korea have risen sharply... after Pyongyang's release of American student Otto Warmbier, who was brought home in a coma.
