North Korea Turns Cell Phone Use Into War Crime

As if living in North Korea wasn’t hard enough. Now the regime is instituting a 100 day mourning period, which prohibits the use of mobile phones. And they’re serious about it: “[T]he ruling Workers’ Party has warned that anyone found using a mobile phone during the 100 day mourning period following Kim Jong-il’s death will be punished ‘like a war criminal.'” Now I wonder if this applies specifically to using your cell phone to make calls. Or can you be convicted from playing Angry Birds and Words with Friends?

About Moye

I am a Japanese-American girl who was born, raised and is most probably stuck in traffic right this second in Los Angeles. I'm currently one of the co-editors of 8Asians and like to distract myself with good food, reading long books, playing video games, catching up on celebrity news, choosing my new new haircut and then writing all about it on Hello Moye and sometimes here on Twitter if I can get it in under 140 words or less. You can reach me at moye[at]
