"Mind your own business," North Korea's ambassador told the U.N. Human Rights Council Friday, moments before it voted to demand justice for alleged Nazi-style atrocities in his country.North Korea, officially called the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), has observer status with no vote.EU Ambassador Mariangela Zappia said the "overwhelming" amount of evidence in the report meant the Council could not remain silent and had to confront North Korea.The U.N. Human Rights Council also extended the mandate of its North Korea Investigator Marzuki Darusman by one year and agreed to set up a field office to help him collect more evidence about the allegations, which include the claim that up to 120,000 people are being held in political prison camps.Members of the Security Council condemned Thursday North Korea's ballistic missile launch this week as a violation of U.N. resolutions, and will continue discussions on an "appropriate response".
