Officials said the mass arrival was “sensitive” and refused to discuss details, disclosing only that an Asiana Airlines flight airlifted the North Koreans from a Southeast Asian nation. “This is a very unusual situation which shows how sensitive the whole thing is,” said a spokesman for the foreign ministry.
