Making a LINK to N. Korea

Despite North Korea's long
history of human rights viola-
tions and divisive governmen-
tal ruling, students on campus
are working to raise aware-
ness of the challenges that the
country's citizens are facing.
Liberty in North Korea, also
known as LiNK, is a non-profit
organization based out of Tor-
rance, Calif. LSA junior James
Kim - president of the Uni-
versity's LiNK chapter, which
currently has about 50 mem-
bers - said the club tries to
separate the citizens of North
Korea from the stigma of the
country's controversial gov-
University alum Jannet

Park, a former LiNK president,
said the goal of the club is to
raise awareness on the issue
of freedom in North Korea
through fundraising and infor-
mational programs.
"Most people just don't
know the issues at stake. (North
Korean) people are poor and
forced to live under this really
powerful communist regime,
but most don't realize why it's
such a big issue," Park said.
The University's chapter of
LiNK was founded in 2005, but
was forced to shut down by the
California headquarters two
years ago, which reorganized,
Park said.
Park relaunched the Uni-

versity's chapter in fall 2011.
LiNK's largest event is a
documentary screening each
semester by the LiNK nomads,
a group of committed vol-
unteers trained to promote
awareness. Park said last
year's documentary screening
of "The Hiding," focused on
North Korean refugees.
Last December, members
of LiNK also promoted a peti-
tion to pass the North Korean
Refugee Adoption Act, a bill
that passed the U.S. House of
Representatives last week that
aims to assist stateless North
Korean children.

Aghans shout anti-American slogans in the Ghanikhel district of Nangarhar province, east of Kabul, Afghanistan, Friday
during a protest against an anti-Islam film.
Militants claim Afghanistan
attack is revenge for film

Suicide bomber
kills 12 people on
KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) -
Islamic militants sought Tues-
day to capitalize on anger over
an anti-Islam video that was pro-
duced in the United States, say-
ing a suicide bombing that killed
12 people in Afghanistan was
revenge for the film and calling
for attacks on U.S. diplomats and
facilities in North Africa.
The attempt by extremists
across the region to harness Mus-
lim fury over a film that deni-
grates the Prophet Muhammad
posed new concern for the United
States, whose embassies and con-
sulates have been targeted, and in
some cases breached, during riots
and protests over the past week.
At the same time, Western
leaders welcomed statements by
Middle East governments that
condemned the violence against
diplomatic facilities on their soil,
even as they expressed anger

over the video. Some of those
governments replaced autocratic
regimes in popular uprisings that
swept the region, allowing for
greater leniencytoward protest.
At least 28 people have died
in violence linked to the film in
seven countries, including U.S.
Ambassador Christopher Stevens
and three other Americans killed
in a Sept. 11 attack on the U.S.
Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
The toll also includes 12 protest-
ers killed in riots overthe filmlast
Some officials in Libya have
said the attack on the consul-
ate was planned in advance by
militants. However, the White
House said Tuesday the assault
appeared to have been sparked
by anger over the film, though the
investigation continues.
The crisis has become a major
foreign policy challenge for
Washington in the final weeks of
a presidential election campaign
that has largely focused on eco-
nomic challenges. The uproar
over the video, "Innocence of
Muslims," which was made by an

Egyptian-born American citizen
and posted on YouTube, reflects
seemingly intractable tension
between Western principles of
free speech and Islamic beliefs
that brook no insult directed at
the prophet.
The crisis offered fresh impe-
tus for Islamic militants who
have long plotted and carried out
attacks on Westerntargets.
Tuesday's attack in Kabul, the
Afghan capital, was carried out
by a suicide bomber who rammed
a car packed with explosives
into a mini-bus carrying foreign
aviation workers to the airport.
At least 12 people died, includ-
ing eight South Africans, three
Afghans and a citizen of Kyrgyz-
A spokesman for the Afghan
militant group, Hizb-i-Islami,
claimed responsibility for the
dawn attack and said it was car-
ried out by a 22-year-old woman
named Fatima. Suicide bomb-
ings carried out by women are
extremely rare in Afghanistan,
where few if any Afghan women
drive cars.
