Poytner: AP to Open Bureau in North Korea

The Associated Press says it's reached agreements with the North Central News Agency, including one to open an AP news bureau in Pyongyang. AP says it would be the first permanent text and photo bureau operated by a Western news organization in the North Korean capital. The second memo of understanding outlines cooperation on journalistic and photo/video technology issues, including a joint photo exhibition by the two agencies in New York next year.
