Report shows surprisingly high rate of slavery in developed countries



UNITED NATIONS – Yeonmi Park is the name of a former slave from North Korea. She had never seen a world map. She almost starved to death. After having undergone an appendectomy at the age of 13 without anesthesia, Ms. Park recalled seeing human bodies piled up in front of the hospital, her eyes eaten by rats.

Convinced that she would die in North Korea, Ms. Park's mother fled to China, where traffickers sold her for $ 200. Two years later, after escaping through the Gobi Desert to Mongolia, Ms. Park found refuge in South Korea. She has no idea what happened to her North Korean relatives, Ms. Park said.

"The scariest thing for me to cross the desert that night," she said, "was forgotten, no one knows I existed in this world."

Woman. Park, 24, now a student at Columbia University in New York, recalled Thursday a news conference at the United Nations to publish a new survey on modern slavery – a broad term used by human rights activists, including forced labor, forced marriages and sexual exploitation
