EX-KID­NAP VIC­TIM DIES

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

SEOUL: A South Korean ac­tress who was once kid­napped by the North on the or­ders of late leader Kim Jong-Il in a Cold War-style in­trigue and forced to make movies for the regime has died aged 91. Choi Eun-hee was the South’s most fa­mous ac­tress for decades be­fore be­ing brazenly ab­ducted by North Korean spies in Hong Kong in 1978. Dur­ing her visit to Hong Kong to meet a po­ten­tial in­vestor in her arts school, she was re­port­edly lured onto a boat by her guide be­fore be­ing trans­ferred against her will to a cargo ship des­tined for North Korea. – AFP
