North Korea's state-run Korean Central News Agency has begun streaming its programs live via Facebook since late last year, it emerged on Thursday. Most of the content has centered on propaganda pictures and videos praising its leader, Kim Jong-un.
All the postings are in English. The first one, uploaded on Nov. 23, was a doctored picture mixed with the North Korean flag. On March 11, an announcement was posted that a live stream of North Korean state TV on has started on Facebook.
On Thursday, the popular social networking site attracted a flood of online users, with many apparently simply intrigued by a look inside the reclusive state.
However, the page was blocked in South Korea later that evening. The National Police Agency said the national security law forbids citizens from viewing North Korean propaganda.
