The World Food Program announced a major expansion of its operations in North Korea on Monday. A U.S. ship carrying 37,000 tons of wheat arrived there Sunday. North Korea is letting the WFP expand its staff there sixfold — a rare opening of the communist nation to foreign observers.

Co-host Renee Montagne talks with Anthony Banbury, the World Food Program's regional director for Asia about the developments.
