Official media published photos of the parade, in which participants wore protective suits

North Korean authorities staged a military parade to commemorate the 73rd anniversary of the founding of the communist state, in which none of the major ballistic missiles appeared.

Instead, state television broadcast scenes from the parade, which took place at night, showing soldiers and workers wearing gas-protective suits.

The leader, Kim Jong-un, who looked even thinner than before, was seen in the crowd without masks, embracing children.

North Korea is suffering from a food shortage and an economic crisis exacerbated by the outbreak of the Corona virus pandemic.
