Pyongyang not under “under lockdown,” city sources say

Telegraph claim that Pyongyang is "under lockdown" inaccurate, Pyongyang sources say

Pyongyang is not "under lockdown," sources living in the city told NK News on Friday, rejecting commentary in the Telegraph that suggested a coup d'etat may have taken place in North Korea.

The Telegraph's suggestion of political instability emerged Friday amid Kim Jong Un's ongoing public disappearance and a New Focus International report, which this week suggested North Korea recently "restricted entry and exit permissions to Pyongyang".
