It is known that foreign reporters invited to cover specific events in North Korea are subjected to very tight restrictions, regarding access and movement.

The journalists should be aware by now that when they go to these dictatorships to report on any events that they would be seriously censored, and mostly only be allowed to report only what the hosts want to be aired. I know it has to be a frightening ordeal to be interrogated by the agents of these States but its all good, however, that they were allowed to leave without threat to their wellbeing. This is just part of the risks involved when one tries to report objectively on events in these closed societies
