Prisoners Left in Korea

The United States knew at the end of the Korean War in 1953 that North Korea had kept more than 900 American prisoners, The New York Times said Tuesday, citing newly declassified documents.

The House of Representatives National Security subcommittee will hear testimony from a Czechoslovak defector, Jan Sejna, who now works for the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency.

Sejna said that the Soviet Union and Czechoslovakia had conducted interrogation experiments on the prisoners, and subsequently executed them.
