North Korea: Bone Headed

In the "just when you thought North Korea couldn't sink any lower" category, the North Korea Zone reports here that the North Korean government, allegedly returning the remains of Megumi Yokota, a woman they abducted, provided someone else's bones instead, as confirmed by DNA tests. The Japanese are "outraged" and there is a threat to cut off food aid from Japan (just in time for another DPRK famine).

To make matters potentially even worse, one of the comments to the NK Zone post notes that, given the uproar, if Ms. Yokota is still alive, her health may now be at risk as the DPRK seek to save some face by producing her "real" remains.

What a country!
