North Korea officials in Pyongyang describe the claims are a "sheer fabrication". Now there are reports that it has aggressively jam the BBC’s new Korean language service, on the same day it began. The BBC shortwave announced the service of news, sport, business and culture for audiences on the Korean peninsula and Korean speakers around the world.
