Image of Asia: Directing traffic on a North Korean street

In this photo by Wong Maye-E, a traffic policewoman directs vehicles at a street junction in front of a sidewalk decorated with Workers' Party flags in Pyongyang, North Korea. Members of North Korea's ruling party have gathered in Pyongyang ahead of their biggest political conference in decades. Foreign experts say North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un will likely use the meeting to place his loyalists into key positions, strengthen his push to upgrade his country's nuclear arsenal and cement his grip on power.
