U.N. team to visit North Korea to assess floods damage

SEOUL (Reuters) - A United Nations team plans to visit North Korea from Tuesday to assess the damage from recent floods before deciding on a response, a UNICEF official based in Bangkok told Reuters on Monday.

"We have agreed to send an inter-agency rapid assessment team to the two most affected counties tomorrow (July 31)," Christopher de Bono, chief of communications for East Asia and the Pacific for the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), said in an emailed statement.
