North Korea opens annual 'mass games'

Six-week festival in Pyongyang features the world's largest synchronised cultural performance.

    While the London 2012 Olympic Games are dominating headlines around the world, in North Korea there is a different story.

    Officials have just kicked off the six-week-long Arirang Festival, which features a huge synchronised spectacle - widely recognised as the largest event of its kind anywhere in the world.
