N. Korea criticizes 'human rights racket' of US

Posted:
A North Korean spokesman is blaming the United States and its allies for a "human rights racket" a day after the U.N. Security Council met to discuss a new report that accuses the reclusive communist regime of crimes against humanity.
   The North's official Korean Central News Agency on Friday quoted a spokesman for the country's foreign ministry and accused the U.S. and allies of reaching an "extremely reckless phase" with Thursday's informal council meeting.
   It was the first time the Security Council had met on the unprecedented U.N. commission of inquiry report, which recommends that the council refer its findings to the International Criminal Court.
   The commission chair says most council members expressly said the matter should be referred. All members but Russia and top Pyongyang ally China attended.
