In this April 11, 2017 photo, a person touches the screen of an automated teller machine at the Sunan International Airport in Pyongyang, North Korea. No modern airport terminal is complete without an ATM, and Pyongyang’s now has two. But they don’t work, because of new Chinese sanctions, according to bank officials, and it’s not clear when they will. ATMs are an alien enough concept in North Korea that those in the capital’s shiny new Sunan International Airport have a video screen near the top showing how they work and how to set up an account to use them. The explanatory video is in Korean, but the machines, which are meant primarily for Chinese businesspeople and tourists, don’t give out cash in the North Korean currency. (AP Photo/Wong Maye-E)
