The UN General Assembly has voted in favour of referring North Korea to the International Criminal Court to face charges of crimes against humanity.

The resolution was passed by 116 votes to 20, with more than 50 abstentions.

The UN Security Council is expected to discuss the resolution on Monday, but it is likely to face stiff opposition from China and Russia.

North Korea said the resolution was “a product of political plot and confrontation”.-—
