Seemingly indifferent to what happened on the other side of the cross-border Tumen River Nike Shox Current Homme Pas Cher , many Chinese residents living near the North Korean border were willing but unable to render assistance to the poor people.
The mixed feelings were sometimes exacerbated by fears of North Korean Army deserters' murders.
A pharmacy sales assistant surnamed Cui, 60, from the border city of Tumen, Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture, Northeast China's Jilin Province, recalled her reunion with North Korean relatives five years ago.
"Looking emaciated and pale Nike Shox Turbo 2 Homme Pas Cher , they were happy to live here," Cui told the Global Times. "We gave them food and clothing whenever they visited us."
The Chinese family has since been in the dark over their North Korean relatives' lives. "We can only wait for them to come to us instead of reaching out to them," Cui explained dejectedly.
Since most local residents of the prefecture's Korean ethnic minority group have relatives in North Korea, their natural bond with the country and concern for the people on the opposite side of the Tumen River remains, even though contact with them has been cut off.
Meanwhile, border villagers also remain on high alert for North Koreans coming across the river.
In a visit to Bailong village of Yueqing township by the Tumen River Nike Shox Homme Pas Cher , the Global Times reporter found one iron gate on each end of every block of single-storey houses, many of which had one or two wolf dogs.
The local villagers tended to be reticent, evading the reporter's eyes and pretending to fuss around when any subject involving North Korea was raised, even on how they felt during the earthquake following Friday nuclear test.
Only one of the villagers was willing to talk about her anxiety over and sympathy for the hungry North Koreans. "We used to give them food and rice when they crossed the river, but we've been hearing about the death of Chinese villagers at the hands of North Korean Army deserters so often that we are afraid to get in touch with them," she said.

Chinese conglomerate Wanda is considering ramping up its push into Hollywood with the acquisition of the production company behind the Golden Globes, the US firm said Monday.
Eldridge Industries Nike Shox OZ D Femme Pas Cher , which controls Dick Clark Productions, said discussions to sell the company to Wanda were part of a move to conduct a "strategic review" of its media holdings.
"Dick Clark Productions and Beijing Wanda Culture Industry Group Co., Ltd., have agreed to enter into exclusive talks with the shared goal of finalizing a mutually satisfactory transaction," Eldridge said in a statement.
Although it did not disclose financial aspects of the talks, reports in The Wall Street Journal and the Hollywood Reporter said the price discussed could be $1 billion or so.
The Journal and Reporter cited unnamed sources.
Owned by one of the country's richest men Nike Shox OZ D Homme Pas Cher , billionaire Wang Jianlin, Wanda is seeking to shift its focus from property to services and entertainment as profits wane in China's real estate sector.
Wanda would be a main contender for Dick Clark Productions, which bills itself on its website as "the world's largest producer and proprietor of televised live event entertainment programming."
The company's productions include the American Music Awards, the Miss America beauty pageant, Billboard Music Awards and the Golden Globe Awards.
The news reports stressed that talks with Wanda were at a very early stage, with a potential purchase price undetermined.
Wanda announced plans last week to invest in movies produced by Sony Pictures under an agreement that moves the company closer to its goal of becoming a major Hollywood player.
The movie deal Nike Shox OZ Pas Cher , Wanda's first with one of Hollywood's so-called "Big Six" studios, was a major milestone for the conglomerate as it attempts to transform itself into a heavy-hitter in the global entertainment industry.
Wanda has expanded aggressively overseas, snapping up a string of assets in Europe and the US in recent years.
In January, the company acquired US production company Legendary Entertainment for $3.5 billion. Wanda's founder Wang also financed the movie Spotlight, which won the Academy Award for best picture this year.
The company has also pursued numerous deals in the international sports arena, including the acquisition of the Iron Man triathlon Nike Shox R4 Homme Pas Cher , but Wang has made it clear he has his sights set on Hollywood.
In July, Wanda was reportedly in talks to buy a stake in another "Big Six" US film studio Paramount Pictures.
The company's buying spree extends to brick-and-mortar investments: It bought US movie-theater chain AMC Entertainment in.
