Quote:
A North Korean prison camp escapee, who is now a high-profile human rights campaigner, has apologised for inaccuracies in his story.

Shin Dong-hyuk, 32, was the subject of a best-selling book after he fled North Korea in 2005.

The book described how Mr Shin was tortured, and his relatives killed.

On Saturday, the author said that although the key elements of Mr Shin's accounts were correct, the time and date of some events were wrong.

Disappointed. Not sure if I'll bother reading autobiographies any more.

The young man at the center of The Boy Who Came Back from Heaven, Alex Malarkey, said this week that the story was all made up.

Malarkey, ha ha
