The UN human rights council is due to discuss a report on human rights violations in North Korea.

The authors say the infringements resemble the worst atrocities of World War Two and suggest North Korea should be referred to the International Criminal Court.

A number of people who managed to escape from North Korea have travelled to Geneva for the meeting.
