North Korea's mass games festival begins in Pyongyang

The Arirang mass games - one of the highlights of the North Korean cultural calendar - have begun in the capital Pyongyang.

Until September 9, tens of thousands of singers, dancers and gymnasts will perform at the May Day stadium to celebrate the country's late leaders and the 60th anniversary of the end of the Korean War.
