North Korea news websites erase articles: Media tracker
SEOUL (AFP) - North Korea's state news outlets have erased tens of thousands of articles archived on their websites following the execution of leader Kim Jong Un's uncle, according to a watchdog site.
About 35,000 articles have disappeared from the website of the North's official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), as well as 65,000 articles in Spanish, English, Chinese and Japanese, according to Mr Frank Feinstein, an analyst who tracks the North's online media for Seoul-based website NK News.
About 20,000 articles were also removed from the archives of the Rodong Sinmun, the official newspaper of North Korea's Workers' Party, it said.
Currently, the digital record of state-approved news only reaches back to October 2013 on KCNA's website.
