N. Korean media shows Chinese VR headsets made with South Korean, UK parts

Exports would have breached sanctions if they happened after December 22 last year

A North Korean monthly periodical published in March shows students holding relatively cutting edge and expensive virtual reality (VR) headsets made from South Korean and UK components.

In a possible breach of UN resolutions, the magazine - called Pictorial Korea - shows two students holding the devices in a section promoting the North's use of technology in education.
