As the temperature dropped below freezing and food became scarce, many are believed to have frozen or starved to death.

Lucas Rengifo-Keller, a research analyst at the Peterson Institute for International Economics in the US, claims that food insecurity in North Korea is at its worst since a widespread famine in the 1990s.

According to scientists, climate change is leading to an increase in the frequency of extreme weather, including cold waves.

The cold wave warnings on Tuesday come as Pyongyang gears up to commemorate the Korean People’s Army’s 75th anniversary the following week.
