Mass rallies held in DPRK
Thousands of uniformed soldiers gathered in rigid formations in various cities. They chanted in unison, holding banners declaring support for all-out war and the country’s leadership.
The DPRK has been raising its war rhetoric almost daily in recent weeks. It is angry about UN sanctions related to a February nuclear test, and continuing US-South Korean military drills.
Foreign diplomats based in Pyongyang say the government told them it could not guarantee their safety if hostilities break out, unless they leave the country by the 10th of April. But so far, there has been no sign of diplomats preparing to leave.
