Inside North Korea: Silk Mill Workers
North Korea is a nation known for its reclusiveness. Media coverage is strictly censored and press freedom highly restricted. Occasionally, the government permits foreign journalists to take guided tours, which allows a limited view of what’s inside the country.
Reuters photographer Bobby Yip captured pictures of workers at the Kim Jong-suk Pyongyang Silk Mill in Pyongyang April 9. The factory is named after the wife of North Korea founder Kim Il-sung and appears to employ women exclusively on the factory floor. Little else is known about the mill, such as working conditions or level of output, but these photos present a rare glimpse into how the North Korean government would like outsiders to see its industry.
