Abductees’ family association chooses new leader 

All national papers wrote on Sunday that Chief Representative Iizuka of the association of the families of the Japanese citizens abducted by North Korea has stepped down due to illness, and the younger brother of abductee Megumi Yokota has taken his place. Upon taking the helm of the group on Saturday, Takuya Yokota stressed that the families’ resolve to win back their loved ones remains steadfast and the group will continue to seek international coordination to achieve that goal.
