A Daily NK source has told the online newspaper that that regime has distributed corn to citizens in some urban areas to appease recent discontent.
The reason for the distribution is said to be because of unhappiness at the recent mobilisations due to the ongoing tension on the Korean peninsula. The mobilisations and associated activities have restricted market activities.
A source said that people suffering from food insecurity in Onsung County had been given 15kg of corn. In Hyesan, each home has received 10kg. Others in more rural areas have received nothing, which has made life more difficult for those people.
