LSE put us at ‘more risk’ by going public on North Korea trip, say students

Six of the 10 students who took part in a trip to North Korea, alongside an undercover BBC reporter, have said that their university has put them in more danger by speaking out, The Guardian reports.

An open letter to London School of Economics and Political Science director Craig Calhoun and chairman Peter Sutherland says: “We feel that we have now been put in more risk than was originally the case, as a result of the LSE’s decision to go public with their story.”

The Guardian reports that the students said not all of them were consulted by the LSE before its announcement, and that they “felt compelled to establish the basic facts of the case”.
