IT’S ONE OF the most secretive nations in the world but this week, North Korea allowed journalists from other countries in to witness its controversial failed rocket test.

Although accompanied by officials at all times and instructed to only cover what they had been given permission to photograph, some photographers managed to snap some pictures of daily life in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.

Some of the photographs – particularly the ones taken outside of factories –  have been taken covertly or from a distance, and show some scenes of life in the communist country.
