    TOKYO: A United Nations team probing North Korea’s human rights record on Thursday heard of the pain experienced by Japanese families when their loved ones vanished, abducted to train Pyongyang’s spies. The three-member Commission of Inquiry chaired by retired Australian judge Michael Kirby met the parents of Megumi Yokota, who has become an iconic figure in Japan after her kidnapping by North Korean agents in 1977 when she was 13. The commission members also met families of others who were abducted—Keiko Arimoto and Yaeko Taguchi.
