A starving North Korean refugee in China

One reads a lot of reports about starving North Koreans.

How do you picture “starving’?

This woman, who had defected to China fleeing the mass starvation in North Korea, was captured by the Chinese police the day after this picture was taken.

She was later repatriated to North Korea.

She is known to have died soon afterward in a North Korean prison.
