N. Korea apologizes to ROK press for restricting inter-Korean concert coverage
Lack of cooperation between leader's security and organizers led to "mistake," says DPRK official

Senior DPRK official Kim Yong Chol on Monday extended an official apology to South Korean reporters after they were prevented from entering the venue of an inter-Korean concert in Pyongyang the previous day.

Sunday's “Spring is Coming” concert began at 1820 local time and continued for two hours and 10 minutes at the East Pyongyang Grand Theatre, and was attended by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and his wife Ri Sol Ju.
