Chinese milk problems in Nth Korea 3 yrs ago

Ex-expat left a comment on a previous post with a link to The Daily NK  which carries a story saying children fed on milk powder imported from China were falling ill and dying three years ago.

 Amidst the Chinese ¡°Melamine milk¡± repercussions that are spreading rapidly across the world, it has come to light that a number of North Korean infants who had been given Chinese powdered milk in 2005 died.

According to merchants trading between China and North Korea, the Chinese Melamine-tainted milk affair started in Pyongyang in the summer of 2005. At the time, infants who ate imported Chinese powdered milk fell unconscious and, in more serious cases, died.

Does the fact that neither China nor North Korea are bastions of free speech have anything to do with this not having been widely known until now?
