"North Koreans greet Olympic torch"

The Olympic torch made its way through North Korea last month. This event was very significant since this was the first ever passage of Olympic torch through North Korea.
To me this news was really surprising because I would never have guessed this would be the first ever passage of the Olympic torch from North Korea. On the other hand the passage was very easy in North Korea, since China is a close ally of the regime; therefore no pro-Tibet demonstrations occurred in North Korea.
