The Megumi Yokota Saga
Thursday, May 18, 2006 Posted: 09:18 PM JST
Megumi Yokota is the 13 year old Japanese girl who was abducted by North Korean agents on November 15, 1977. One day she just vanished without a trace. It wasn't until twenty years later that her parents discovered she had been abducted. This month Megumi's mother met president Bush and her father met the parents of the man Megumi married in North Korea. Turns out this man was abducted from South Korea. The story gets more bizarre at each and every turn.
Now there is a documentary about Megumi Yokota's tragic story. Safari Media, who produced the documentary, has a trailer and background information on its site. Highly recommended.
A book has also been published: "My daughter, Mother will come and find you". It is published by Soshisha Co., Tokyo, Japan. For the translated English text please contact : firstname.lastname@example.org or call +81 (0)3 3470 6566.
