North Korea has decided to withdraw its workers from
an industrial park run jointly with the South, a news report said
The workers would be withdrawn from the Kaesong complex, about 10 kilometres north of the border, due to the South's provocations against the country's dignity, Pyongyang's state-run Korean Central News Agency reported.
North Korea barred entry to workers from the South on Wednesday, only allowing employees to leave if they wished.
About 500 South Koreans are thought to still be in Kaesong. More than 50,000 North Koreans are employed by the 123 South Korean companies in the park.
