North Koreans 'starving' due to tough Covid measures in country 'with zero cases'

North Koreans are starving due to drastic restrictions taken by the state to contain coronavirus, a United Nations investigator says.

Strict measures in North Korea have exacerbated human rights abuses and economic hardship for its people, the report adds. The country claims not to have any Covid cases despite sharing a border with China.

Officials have imposed border closings, banned most international travel and severely restricted domestic travel in the past year.
