Increase of asylum seekers for U.S.

Forty-eight South Koreans applied for asylum in the United States during fiscal year (FY) 2006, but only one was approved, according to an immigration agency record made available Thursday.

Six North Korean asylum seekers were approved for the year period from Oct. 1, 2005, to Sept. 30, 2006.
