As North Korea is celebrating 65 years of communist rule, the notoriously secretive country is giving unprecedented access to foreign journalists.

For the first time ever, foreign reporters have been invited to cover the festivities marking the occasion.

North Korean officials are expected to use the celebrations to confirm the handover of power from ailing leader Kim Jong-il to his son and heir apparent, Kim Jong-un.
