The DPRK has announced it will end an investigation into its past abductions of Japanese citizens. The country’s official KCNA news agency reported a committee tasked to look into the issue has been disbanded. The announcement came after Japan imposed sanctions in response to Pyongyang’s rocket launch. In 2002, the DPRK admitted to having kidnapped 13 Japanese citizens in the 1970s and 80s. Five abductees and their families later returned to Japan.
