  • North Korea shuts down universities for 10 months

    North Korea has shut down its universities for the next 10 months and sent students to work in factories, agriculture and the construction sector as it struggles to rebuild its economy.

    Analysts in Japan claim there may be other reasons behind the decision to disperse the students across the country.

    "One reason is that there is a possibility of demonstrations at university campuses," said Toshimitsu Shigemura, a professor at Tokyo's Waseda University and author of a number of books on the North Korean leadership.
