NKorea Protests UN Rights Resolution   11/25 06:37

   PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) -- North Korea held a mass rally Tuesday in its 
capital to protest a United Nations resolution condemning its human rights 
record.

   Thousands of protesters in Kim Il Sung Square carried banners praising their 
leaders and condemning the United States. Such mass rallies are organized by 
the government and are used to express its official line.

   North Korea has denounced the U.N. resolution, which is the first to urge 
the Security Council to refer the issue to the International Criminal Court. 
That would open the possibility of its autocratic leader, Kim Jong Un, being 
targeted by prosecutors. The non-binding resolution is to come before the U.N. 
General Assembly in the coming weeks.

   North Korea says the U.N. move is based on trumped-up allegations by 
defectors and backed by the United States and other countries seeking to 
overthrow its ruling regime. Its state media have been producing articles 
critical of the human rights situation in the United States and threatening 
severe retaliation against any attempts to bring down its government.

   The resolution followed a U.N. commission of inquiry report early this year 
that said North Korea's human rights situation "exceeds all others in duration, 
intensity and horror."
