Throughout the 1970-80s, Japanese citizens had turned up missing. It was revealed that North Korea kidnapped some Japanese citizens. In 2002, five victims were released and returned to Japan (see the left picture). It is suspected that there are still more Japanese citizens remaining in North Korea today. This is a relatively unknown human rights and diplomatic issue in East Asia.
