Foreign journalists in North Korea gather for ‘big and important event’ amid tensions




Foreign journalists visiting North Korea gathered in Pyongyang for “a big and important event” on Thursday with tensions high over the possibility of a new weapons test by the isolated state and as a US carrier group sails towards the Korean peninsula.

North Korea marks the 105th anniversary of the birth of the state founder Kim Il-sung on Saturday and in 2012 launched a long-range rocket carrying a satellite to mark the date. It tested a newly developed intermediate-range missile last year.
