Archaeologists in Pyongyang have discovered a unicorn’s lair, it has been revealed.

The unicorn was said to have been ridden by the ancient Korean King Tongmyong, founder of a kingdom, which ruled parts of China and the Korean peninsula from the 3rd century BC to 7th century AD.

According to sources, the location happens to be 200 metres from a temple in the North Korean capital.
