Pyongyang restricts cross-border movements

Text by AFP

Latest update : 2008-11-24

North Korean media announced that Pyongyang would suspend a breakthrough rail service to the South, as well as "strictly restrict" border crossing from South to North, citing South Korean's policy of "confrontation" as the reason.

North Korea announced Monday it would suspend a historic cross-border railway service from December 1 in protest at what it called South Korea's policy of confrontation.
  
State media said a popular tour to the North's city of Kaesong would also be suspended.
  
The North would also "selectively expel" South Koreans involved with two landmark joint projects, the Kaesong industrial estate and the Mount Kumgang tourist resort in the North.
  
Military authorities would "strictly restrict" border crossings by South Koreans headed for the two projects, the Korean Central News Agency said.
