Update: North Korea holds military parade, no major weapons displayed

by Gabriel Dominguez & Mark Cazalet

North Korea's government held a night-time military parade on 9 September to mark the 73rd anniversary of the country's founding but seems to have not displayed any major military equipment.

The state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) indicated that the parade at Pyongyang's Kim Il-sung Square was mostly led by the Worker-Peasant Red Guards (WPRG) rather than regular troops.

South Korea's Yonhap News Agency described the WPRG as “a civilian defence organisation composed of around 5.7 million workers and farmers”, while the KCNA referred to them as “paramilitary and public security forces”.
