 North Korea's two major universities, Kimilsung University and Kimchaek University, were found to have inscribed their names in English on their emblems, pro-North Korean media in Japan reported Saturday.

   According to the Choson Sinbo, the North's most prestigious university, named after its founder Kim Il-sung, inscribed the school's name in English on its emblem, an uncommon practice in the reclusive socialist country.

   The circular mark also includes illustrations of the university on a globe, as well as a modern electronic library.

   Earlier on March 1, the newspaper said Kimchaek University's new emblem featured an image of an artificial satellite and the school's name in English. (Yonhap)
