Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "Yokota"

Other questions about "Yokota"

Q: Mr.Shigeru Yokota died at the age of 87. His daughter Megumi was abducted by North Korea in 1977 when she was 13 years old. He could not meet her again. bu doğru görünüyor mu?
A: × He could not meet her again.
✓ He never saw her again. He was never allowed to see her again. They were never to meet again.

Either of these new sentences work fine. Saying he could not meet her again is more complicated because meet usually means when you see somebody for the first time, although not always. Hope this helps. And darn you North Korea!
Q: 'Yokota and his wife Sakie, along with seven other families of Japanese citizens abducted by North Korean agents, formed a group in March 1997.'

In this sentence, when you say ' families (of Japanese citizens) abducted by North Korean agents', doesn't that mean these families were abducted? I thought it should be 'families whose child or sibling were abducted' because the ones who were taken away are not these people who formed a group but their children or siblings.

Or is it possible to say 'This family was abducted' when you want to say 'a member of this family was taken away'?
A: "seven other families of Japanese citizens abducted by North Korean agents"

These are the families of the people who were abducted.

You could use "whose" to clarify it, but this "of" would usually be understood.

"The people in the front row were the families of the actors."
Q: I rushed to Yokota straight from a party,so I didn't have time to change. bu doğru görünüyor mu?
