N. Korea Shows Off ‘Gleaming’ Airport

North Korea unveiled a brand-new airport this week, with gleaming facilities that will serve just a few flights a day while much of the country lives in poverty. Three pages of a state-run North Korean paper were devoted to images of Kim Jong Un touring the new facilities, which purportedly even have stands with Mars bars. Most North Koreans are not allowed to travel abroad, and in any case likely wouldn’t be able to afford the luxury. The flights largely cater to Chinese and North Korean officials on state business. The airport is set to open July 1.
