Kimilsung Univ. carves name in English on emblem

 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)
