This North Korean prisoner is one of the many that shared the same baffled expression upon seeing the Communists and their noisy, motley reception. This man did not shout and tear his clothing and swear revenge against his captors, nor was he merely sullen. As the doors of the ambulance were opened, he was then released from prison but not freed.
