Kirby Chairperson of the Commission of Inquiry on Human Rights in North Korea gestures during a news conference at the United Nations in GenevaBy Michelle Nichols UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - The chief U.N. investigator into human rights abuses in North Korea appealed to the U.N. Security Council on Thursday to refer the situation in the reclusive Asian state to the International Criminal Court for prosecution. "In a week of many grave human rights matters occupying the attention of the members of this council, we dare say that the case of human rights in the DPRK (Democratic People Republic of Korea) exceeds all others in duration, intensity and horror," Michael Kirby told an informal meeting of the 15-member council. A year-long U.N. inquiry, led by Kirby, concluded in a February 17 report that North Korean security chiefs and possibly even Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un himself should face international justice for ordering systematic torture, starvation and killings comparable to Nazi-era atrocities.

Howard has been rewarded for another strong season which has seen the United States international produce a series of outstanding performances as the Toffees challenge for a Champions League place. To have Tim Howard performing as he has been this season, I cannot see past him to choose the best goalkeeper in the league," said Everton manager Roberto Martinez, whose side are in fifth place, one point behind Arsenal in the race for a top-four finish.
