7:13 am
like their reporting. >> reporter: nbc news and dozens of journalists were invited here to cover the congress of the ruling party, but we haven't been allowed in. kim jong-un boasted of the nuclear power and told american troops to get out of the korean peninsula. officials are clearly determined to ensure his tough guy image isn't questioned by anyone, least of all a foreigner. i spoke to the bbc correspondent. he was happy to get out. but this shows just how sensitive the north koreans are, remember, this is one of the most repressive places on earth, led by an absolute dictator. don't worry, i have no fear in saying that. back to you. >> bill neely in pyongyang, thank you. north carolina facing a deadline over the transgender bathroom law. the federal government last week warned north carolina that the
