The past year and a half has seen farming regions in North Korea suffering from food insecurity, the Daily NK reports. This food insecurity is causing deaths and ill-health in those regions.

A source told the Daily NK that a cadre in Pyongyang had told him that there had been an increase in deaths resulting from hunger in border regions.

The problems of food insecurity have been around for sometime, but they have exacerbated over the past year with poor weather conditions causing crop failures.
