Inside North Korea

North Korea put on an impressive parade at the weekend, ostensibly to celebrate 65 years of Communist Party rule (since the end of World War 2) but also to bolster the position of Kim Jong Un, Kim Jong Il's youngest son who is being groomed to take over the leadership of the country. The BBC were allowed to witness this and their reporter's observations of life in Pyongyang, the North Korean capital, are fascinating. Here are some more photos of the parade, and a helpful family tree of the Korean leaders.
