    Communist North Korea has staged a rare public trial for a man accused of possessing South Korean music, in what one analyst has described as an intensified crackdown on foreign cultural influences.

    Film footage broadcast this week by South Korea's MBC television station shows the April 28 trial in the western border city of Sinuiji.

    The footage, available on YouTube, shows one man on trial for possessing a movie and 75 songs from South Korea, and another accused of encouraging prostitution in the city.
