But the food situation, which has mostly been felt in rural areas where rations have been suspended since November, has now spread to the city, according to the South Korean aid agency.
“Even ranking officials have run out of their (rationed) food supply, while a ban on (private) trade is strictly maintained,” said an unidentified city official quoted by Good Friends.
“It is nothing but a death sentence.”
The agency also said farm labourers were staying away from work because they were not getting any food. This was said to be affecting the planting of new crops.
