North Korea Opens Up, As American Journalists Move In

North Korea is slowly beginning to open up to more foreign media following the death of Kim Jong Il late last year. ABC News correspondent Bob Woodruff will be reporting from the country all this week. Likewise, NBC’s Richard Engel is in the country and filed a report this morning on “Today.”

Update: CNN is there too, with senior international correspondent Stan Grant repping the cabler. It is a busy week in North Korea, with a planned rocket test launch, as well as the 100th birthday of North Korean founder Kim Il Sung.

Woodruff first reported from the country in 2005, with trips back in 2008 and 2010, where he witnessed the public introduction of current leader Kim Jong Un in a parade. Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren has made three trips to North Korea, in the last four years, most recently last May.
