Q&A Scarlatoiu & Beattie / Korea Rights / South Korean officials say Wednesday's cyber attack that shut down computers at several of the country's top banks and broadcasters originated in China. A similar attack shut down the website of the Washington-based rights group Committee for Human Rights in North Korea, a day before the U.N. Human Rights Council (Thursday) is expected to adopt a resolution to establish its first commission of inquiry (COI) into widespread human rights violations in North Korea. The committee's executive director, Greg Scarlatoiu, told VOA's Victor Beattie he first learned his group's website had been hacked after he received an early Wednesday e-mail at home from a colleague in South Korea, who said, "You've been clobbered."
