Days after the FBI named North Korea as the perpetrators of a massive hack on Sony Pictures, the isolated country is feeling the heat.
"When regimes warn of deadly reprisals against countries condemning their atrocities, as the North Koreans have done, that is precisely the moment when we need to stand up and not back down," U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Samantha Power said.
The United Nations Security Council spent more than two hours debating North Korea's human rights record, denouncing the country for systemic violations of its citizens' basic rights. The unprecedented debate was part of an effort to refer North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to the International Criminal Court.
