North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has formally acknowledged that his country is facing food shortages.

Axar.az reports that addressing a meeting of senior leaders, Mr Kim said: "The people's food situation is now getting tense".

He said the agricultural sector had failed to meet its grain targets due to typhoons last year, which caused flooding.

There are reports that food prices have spiked, with NK News reporting that a kilogram of bananas costs $45 (£32).

North Korea has closed its borders to contain the spread of Covid-19.

Trade with China has plummeted as a result. North Korea relies on China for food, fertiliser and fuel.
