North Korea’s surveillance bureau Group 109 (109 Sangmu) has been cracking down on USB ports and remote control functions in plasma TVs since mid-August, according to a Radio Free Asia (RFA) article on Friday.

“This inspection is specifically targeting those with flat-screen televisions,” said an RFA source in Ryanggang Province, adding that the measures are likely to prevent people from watching the forthcoming Asian Games.
