In this June 13, 2002 photo, Chinese security officers and officials at South Korean Embassy in Beijing scuffle in front of a police guard box next to the embassy's main gate as the security officers attempted to drag away a North Korean asylum seeker. Two North Koreans entered the embassy on June 13, 2002 amid a spate of asylum bids by North Koreans, but Chinese guards dragged an asylum-seeker from the visa office after punching and kicking diplomats who tried to block them. North Korea's prison population has swelled in recent years with those caught fleeing the country under a crackdown on defections by young leader Kim Jong Un, according to defectors living in South Korea and researchers who study Pyongyang's notorious network of labor camps and detention centers.
