AFP opens bureau in North Korean capital

New office to be staffed by two North Koreans and regularly visiting foreign correspondents

The Agence France-Presse (AFP) news network officially opened a new bureau in North Korea’s capital on Monday, holding an opening ceremony attended by Emmanuel Hoog, the group’s chief executive and chairman.

The new office will focus on producing video and photographic content, and the news follows an agreement made earlier in the year between AFP and the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).
