N.Korea Bans Laughing, Drinking And Shopping

North Korea has prohibited its citizens from laughing, drinking, or shopping beginning Friday, as part of an 11-day mourning period commemorating the 10th anniversary of former leader and Kim Jong Un’s father, Kim Jong-il.

A North Korean from the northeastern border city of Sinuiju stated, “We must not drink alcohol, laugh, or engage in leisure activities during the mourning period.”

According to the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, if anyone’s family dies during the mourning period, they are not allowed to cry aloud, and the body must be removed after the mourning period is over.”In the past, many people who were caught drinking or being intoxicated during the mourning period were arrested and treated as ideological criminals,” the source mentions.
