The Chinese border post on Chinese-North Korean border in Tumen, Jilin province, China, on May 8, 2009. Chinese army and police track down all North Korean refugees who cross the border. After they catch them, they just hand them back to North Korea. This a violation of the UN Convention on Refugees. North Korea punishes defectors with death penalty or labor camps.
