North Korea list of Japanese abductees contains some 30 names: Nikkei

(Reuters) - North Korea has given Japan a list of some 30 missing Japanese still living in the country, Japan's Nikkei daily reported on Thursday, citing sources - three times as many names as the paper reported a week ago.

The list includes known victims of North Korean state-sponsored kidnappings in the 1970s and 80s - believed to have been snatched to train spies - and, as of Wednesday, Tokyo had matched about two-thirds of them with domestic records of missing persons, the Nikkei said.
