01-AUG-02: TUMEN RIVER: NORTH KOREA
A North Korean border town next to the Tumen River that forms the natural border seperating China and North Korea. The river, just 2 meters wide is often swam by North Koreans fleeing famine and the oppresive regime.
The Chinese Government have conducted sweeps and heightened security in an attempt to flush out the refugees.
