North Korea Food

Noah talks with Douglas Broderick of the Wold Food Program in Pyongyang about the famine in North Korea. The threat of famine and starvation has been present in the country since the mid 1990's. Nearly one-tenth of the population died as a result. WFP feeds some eight-million North Koreans, who are still struggling with droughts and the loss of farming support from the former Soviet Union.
