The women made it to Vientiane, the Laotian capital, where a Washington Post reporter spent two days with them as they paused on their journey to what they hoped would be a better life.
“I was so scared but I kept on going, I just kept on going.” (Sin Huh )— Sometimes the men just wanted to talk with the North Korean women. But most of the time, they wanted the other option: “body cam.” Watching through a smartphone app, the men would ask the women, some of the unknown thousands of North Koreans sold to Chinese husbands and living secretly in northern China, to show their breasts or their backsides, to touch themselves or perform sex acts on one another. They needed the money — even if it amounted to only a few dollars a day.
“In the beginning, I didn’t think it was going to be a big deal.
The discovery led FBI Director James Comey to reopen the bureau’s investigation into Clinton’s server.
She made the heart-wrenching decision to leave her 5-year-old daughter with her Chinese husband.
The women traveled by bus and car down through China to the border with Laos, which they crossed illegally in the black of night, Suh carrying her 18-month-old daughter, Ji-yeon, on her back.
Suh, a 30-year-old woman who fled North Korea in 2008, cradles her 18-month-old daughter Ji-yeon as they make the difficult journey from Laos to Thailand.
“I fell several times and the baby woke up and started crying,” Suh said after they arrived in Vientiane, the capital of Laos.
Huma Abedin, the top Hillary Clinton aide under a new round of scrutiny after FBI agents discovered hundreds of thousands of new emails on her estranged husband’s laptop, has an unlikely defender: Sydney Leathers. She was just married to a bad guy,” Leathers told the program in an interview slated to air Monday night.Leathers, the recipient of Anthony Weiner’s 2013 extramarital digital dalliances who helped torpedo the former congressman’s mayoral bid that year, told “Inside Edition” that Abedin isn’t to blame for the latest controversy. Leathers added that if Weiner was “dumb enough to sext with a child, then, yeah, he’s dumb enough to sext with a child from his wife’s computer, unfortunately.” Clinton aides worried over Weiner sexting in 2011: Wiki Leaks Weiner, who resigned from Congress in 2011 after he accidentally tweeted a photo of his crotch that was meant to be privately shared with a different woman with whom he was flirting online, is being investigated by the FBI over allegations that he sexted with a 15-year-old girl from North Carolina.“There are some people who just want to look at your face, but the majority of them are there for their sexual desires,” Suh said, putting her head down so her long hair covered her cherubic face.“I felt so disgusting.” Together with two women from her village in northeastern China who were also doing chatting work, Suh fled over the summer.I thought it would be okay because I wasn’t actually sleeping with anyone,” said Suh, who, until dreams of escape brought her to this dingy room in Laos, had been one of the legions of North Korean women performing online sex work in back rooms in China.“But then I found out how many perverts there are out there.” Suh, a 30-year-old who escaped from North Korea in 2008, resorted to doing “video chatting” after her second child was born and her husband’s meager construction earnings wouldn’t stretch any further.
