Tanks ‘deployed around Kim Jong Il residences’

(todayonline.com) SEOUL – North Korea has deployed tanks around its leader Kim Jong Il’s houses in Pyongyang to ward off a possible revolt amid continued unrest in the Middle East, Yonhap News reported yesterday, citing a lawmaker who asked not to be identified.

According to the lawmaker, a senior official of the National Intelligence Service (NIS) had confirmed during a closed-door session of the National Assembly’s Intelligence Committee on Friday that Mr Kim has fortified his residences

The NIS official also reportedly acknowledged that North Korea was tightening its grip on its diplomats returning from abroad, as it is wary of them spreading news about the Middle East and causing any potential source of unrest.
