In the last two months, at least twelve boats have washed ashore in Japan carrying 22 dead bodies.

The Japanese Coast Guard believes that the boats are carrying North Korean defectors. One of the boats had the writing "Korean People's Army" which is the name of North Korea's military forces. A scrap of cloth on one boat appears to be from a North Korean national flag.

All of the bodies found were badly decomposed, two of which were found without heads.

Authorities aren't sure exactly what happened on these boats for those on board to be found this way.
