Daily NK reported on the increase of homeless people in North Korea over the past several months. In February, it said that North Korean officials began cracking down on the movements of “vagrants,” and the country has recently moved to identify elderly “vagrants” with a view to either send them to nursing homes or return them to their families.

Regarding this, Daily NK conducted interviews with a current resident of North Korea living in Ryanggang Province and a defector originally from Sariwon, North Hwanghae Province, who arrived in South Korea last year.
