North Korea Soccer Plays to Tie with Kuwait in Beijing (Shh!) In Secret

Hindustan Times says, in a really odd article, that North Korea, Kuwait draw 0-0 in secretive warm-up game. A really odd game, too.
North Korea has drawn intense interest from Japanese media ahead of its clash with Japan in a World Cup qualifying match on February 9 in Saitama.

It has been training in secret in southern China's Hainan island since mid-January.

According to South Korean media, the Norths team have donned disguises in Beijing while guards man the entrance to their practice sessions.

The Saitama match is set to be a politically-charged affair as the rival nations try to overcome angry disputes over North Korean kidnappings of Japanese nationals and Japan's long-term occupation of the Korean peninsula last century.
Can the DPRK get any more isolated?
