3.30pm: Tourists bow before Kim Jong-un’s father ahead of US travel ban

A group of Westerners lined up to bow before statues of North Korea’s founder Kim Il-sung and his son and successor Kim Jong-il (Kim Jong-un’s father), just weeks before a travel ban comes into force which will prevent US tourists from performing the ritual.

Irish call centre manager Kyle Myers, 28, visited the 20 metre high statues at Mansu hill, looking over Pyongyang.

Visitors are required to pay their respects, and passing traffic is obliged to slow down.

Mr Myers said that he wanted “to go somewhere very different from what I’m used to” for his first trip to Asia, “to see something that not a lot of people from back home have seen”.

He told AFP that mounting tensions in the year since he had booked the tour made him nervous, but added: “I don’t see the threat here for tourists as long as they behave themselves and they follow the rules of the country.”

Donald Trump’s administration has announced a “geographical travel restriction” which will stop Americans from travelling to North Korea.

The legislation is a result of “mounting concerns over the serious risk of arrest and long-term detention under North Korea’s system of law enforcement”, said Heather Nauert, spokeswoman for US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

It comes after the death of 22-year-old student Otto Warmbier, who was imprisoned by the North Korean regime for stealing a propaganda sign.
