Activist Kim Hee-tae claims that there are 64 North Koreans being used by a rebel group in Myanmar known as United Wa State Army for slave labor near the Thai border. The men are supposedly being use to farm poppy seeds while the women are put to work processing drugs or alcohol. The South Korean Ministry of Unification is still attempting to confirm the report.
