N Korea - Govt has cracked down on electronic devices following the uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt

[world tribune] North Korea has confiscated electronic equipment capable of disseminating information about democracy uprisings that have raged through the Arab world.

At the same time, the Pyongyang regime has tightened control over the movement of people, in an operation designed to prevent similar disturbances among its own people.
All institutions and households were ordered to report on how many computers and electronic devices including portable data storage devices such as USB sticks and MP3 players they own, a government source here said.
