THREATS FROM NORTH KOREA: N.Korea mobilizes people in congress preparations

A certain reporter visiting North Korea has seen crowds of people being mobilized in preparation for tomorrow's opening of the ruling Workers' Party's first congress in 36 years. They will hold its 7th congress in Pyongyang.

Reporters from Japanese news organizations arrived on Tuesday as part of a group of over 100 foreign media personnel North Korea invested for the occasion, which is intended to underscore Kim Jong Un's grip on power. National flags and billboards with words celebrating the opening were seen all over the city. Women wearing ethnic costumes and carrying flowers were seen gathered at central plaza.

They were apparently there to take part in rehearsals for celebratory events.

On Wednesday, officials invited reporters to visit the site where North Korea's first weapons factory used to stand.
