N. Korea again blocks access to industrial zone

PAJU, South Korea (AFP) - North Korea blocked access to its joint industrial zone with South Korea for a second consecutive day on Thursday, an AFP journalist near the border between the two countries said.

About 40 vehicles were waiting to cross the border to go to the Seoul-invested Kaesong complex but turned around after an announcement through loudspeakers that crossings to the North were prohibited, he said.
