North Korea Selling Arms to Philippine Rebels

South Korean newspapter Chosun reports here that:
The Japanese daily Yomiuri Shimbun reported Monday that Southeast Asian security authorities recently discovered that North Korea sold arms to the Filipino extremist group Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF).

North Korea's suspected arms sales to terrorist groups had led the United States to designate it as a terrorist sponsoring-state, and the arms deal with the MILF clearly supported Washington's claim, said the Yomiuri.

Southeast Asian security authorities found seized documents from the MILF in November last year and learned that North Korea had sold more than 10,000 rifles to the Filipino insurgent group for two years from 1999 and tried to export small submarines, the Japanese daily reported.


Oh, Kim Jong-il say it ain't so...
