Event will be the first of its kind in DPRK in five years

North Korea will hold an Arirang-style mass games event in September as part of celebrations marking the country's 70th anniversary, a North Korea tour operator confirmed on Friday.

The games will be the first of their kind in five years, and will likely fall around Sunday, September 9 – the DPRK's Day of the Foundation of the Republic.
