Anti-U.S. souvenirs disappear from tourist shops in North Korea: sources

Posters, postcards, and stamps carrying anti-American images removed from multiple shops

Anti-U.S. souvenirs once for sale in North Korean tourist-oriented gift shops are no longer being stocked, according to multiple tour guides who have traveled to the DPRK in the past week.

Multiple locations, including a gift shop at the DMZ and stamp shops in Pyongyang and Kaesong, have apparently removed anti-American postcards, posters, and stamps which used to be offered to tourists, said Rowan Beard, a tour manager for Young Pioneer Tours.
