Here’s a quick pointer to Rimjin-gang, my favorite website delivering current reporting from North Korea. Produced by Japan-based Asia Press Network, Rimjin-gang is also just about the only site producing news from one of the world’s most censored nations.
Most of the posts deal with food shortages and distribution problems in several parts of the country. But an item I found fascinating, one that indicates how porous the border has become, discusses the use of Chinese cell phones in border regions where Chinese cell services penetrate into North Korea. Click back to this earlier post for a fuller picture of Asia Press Network’s work. It’s great to see the outlet carrying out this mission.
