U.S. citizens should “draft a will” prior to N. Korea trips: State Department

New update includes language surrounding risks to aviation near peninsula

United States citizens should make preparations for the possibility of dying during authorized trips to North Korea, an updated Department of State travel advisory about the country said on Friday.

The new advice mirrors language that the state department uses about the apparently high risks U.S. citizens face if they travel to countries like Iran, Iraq, Central African Republic, Mali, Somalia and Libya.
