In 1984 moment, N. Korea deletes near entirety of news archives

In striking development, North Korean media deletes near-entirity of its article archives

North Korean state media outlet the Korea Central News Agency (KCNA) has deleted over 35,000 articles from its on-line archives.

The deletion, the biggest ever article removal in KCNA's history, means that with the exception of a small number of articles about Kim Jong Un, the digital record of state-approved news currently only reaches back to October 2013 on KCNA's North Korea (.kp) hosted website.
