A United Nations General Assembly committee Tuesday voted in favor of a draft resolution referring North Korea to the International Criminal Court for crimes against humanity as well as "targeted sanctions" for rampant human rights abuses.
The 111-19, with 55 abstentions, is merely a recommendation.
The General Assembly does not have the power to refer the regime or its leader Kim Jong Un to the ICC.
