Tensions continue to increase between the US and North Korea, as President Trump has escalated rhetoric against the country during his first 100 days in office.
This month, North Korea held a series of national celebrations honoring the 105th anniversary of the birth of North Korea founder Kim II Sung and the founding of the country’s military. Foreign press were invited to cover the celebrations, considered the biggest national holiday of the year. Photos taken by Reuters’ photojournalist of the year, Damir Sagolj, give us a rarely seen look inside the reclusive nation.
Below, see Sagolj’s photos of the celebrations, as well as some shots of everyday life in Pyongyang, North Korea’s capital.
