AP PHOTOS: A look at daily life inside North Korea

By The Associated Press

Associated Press photographer David Guttenfelder is in North Korea and has been documenting scenes around the country that offer a glimpse into a largely unseen side of North Korea, capturing images of daily life that are at times quirky, at other times haunting.

Here's a gallery of some of his recent images.
