The Xinhua newsagency reports the cordial meeting between Kim Jong-Il’s brother-in-law Jang Song Taek and a member of the Chinese politbureau, as the DPRK’s tour of Chinese economic zones draws to a close.

Meanwhile, Yoduk story, the musical based in a North Korean concentration camp, is a sell-out success. The BBC is now featuring the story on its website.

Lastly in today’s North-themed update, Pyongyang’s Korean Central History Museum has agreed to lend a collection of objects to Seoul’s National Museum of Korea, in what will be the biggest exhibition of North Korean artefacts outside of the DPRK. On show from June this year.
