International Children's Day Marked

Interesting article I found in the Korean Central News Agency of the DPRK

A good example of Kim Jong Il reaching out to the youth in order for them to grow up totally loyal to the "Dear Leader".

Pyongyangites were delighted to see children's colorful sports and amusement games held in parks, recreation grounds including the Mangyongdae Fun Fair, Mt.
