BREAKING: Reporters in PyongYang Post Urgent Tweets: Told to Be Prepared to Move Out at 6:20 AM, No Phones Allowed
SEOUL (Reuters) – Foreign journalists visiting North Korea have been told to prepare for a “big and important event” on Thursday, although there were no indications it was directly linked to tensions in the region over the isolated state’s nuclear weapons program.
Around 200 foreign journalists are in Pyongyang as the country marks the 105th birth anniversary of its founding president Kim Il Sung on April 15, North Korea’s biggest national day called “Day of the Sun”.
