Citing legal complaints, YouTube purges more North Korea-focused channels

Both DPRK-run and supporter-run accounts among at least six targeted, though others continue to operate

Following purges of accounts posting North Korean state-produced content last spring and in 2017, YouTube terminated at least six such profiles in the first weeks of January, NK News has found.

Most of the pages now terminated were remade versions of those purged in April 2019, though some were new concepts from DPRK state-run outlets which also first appeared last year.
