North Korea: Kim Jong-un calls for relief in flood-hit areas - BBC News

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has called on the military to carry out relief work in areas recently hit by heavy rains, state media report.

More than 1,000 homes were damaged and about 5,000 people evacuated after the ensuing flooding, state television reported earlier this week.

The move comes amid concerns over an economic crisis and food shortages.

Agricultural land has been damaged, and Kim Jong-un said in June the country faced a "tense" food situation.

He said at the time the agricultural sector had failed to meet its grain targets due to typhoons last year, which caused flooding, and that much would depend on this year's harvest.
