North Korean propaganda sites targeting South go dark in simultaneous outage

Expert says DPRK appears to have intentionally turned off sites, as Kim Jong Un looks to overhaul inter-Korean policy

Several major North Korean propaganda websites targeting South Korean audiences went offline on Thursday, in what may be a move to revamp or take down the sites after leader Kim Jong Un called for a “decisive” change in inter-Korean policy.

The websites of Uriminzokkiri, DPRK Today, Arirang Meari, Tongil Voice and Ryomyong were all down on Thursday morning and remained inaccessible as of 2:20 p.m. KST.
