via North Korean detainee wanted to get off plane in Alaska because he ‘hadn’t seen daylight in a very long time’ – AOL News

Vice President Mike Pence shared a heartbreaking detail about one of the three US citizens freed from North Korean prisons early Thursday. His anecdote provided a glimpse into the brutal nature of hard labor and human rights abuses led by Pyongyang.

“It’s heartbreaking to think of it,” Pence told ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Thursday, referencing the US citizens’ stay in North Korea.

“The secretary of state told me when the plane refueled in Anchorage [Alaska], one of the detainees asked to go outside the plane because he hadn’t seen daylight in a very long time,” Pence said.
