Media-shy North Koreans train in SAfrican township

TEMBISA, South Africa (AP) — The North Korean World Cup squad has held its fourth training session in South Africa with foreign media yet to be allowed in.

The media-shy North Koreans are making their second World Cup appearance and first since 1966. They worked out Saturday at the Makhulong Stadium in the township of Tembisa, near Johannesburg.

Access was granted to only a North Korean TV crew and FIFA's TV unit as Kim Jong Hun's squad prepared for an exhibition against Nigeria at Makhulong on Sunday.

The secretive communist country is required to give journalists access five days before its first match — against Brazil on June 15.
