Google's Eric Schmidt urges North Korea to 'expand internet'

Google Chairman Eric Schmidt has urged North Korea to end its self-imposed isolation and allow its citizens to use the internet.

Speaking after a visit to Pyongyang, he said North Korea would continue to lag economically unless it embraced internet freedom.

He was part of a private US delegation led by former state governor Bill Richardson. The US government has described the visit as "not particularly helpful".
