Dangerous path to flee N Korea

Two North Korean women steal across the partially frozen Tumen River into China.

The woman on the left has paid for the journey but is unaware that her 'guide' is about to pass her to a Chinese man.

An extended version of the footage can be seen on BBC Two's Newsnight programme at 2230 BST on 29 May.
