A clone of the Facebook social media site has briefly appeared in North Korea before quickly going offline.

Hosted on the StarCon.net.kp address in North Korea it had many of the features of other social networks.

It is not clear who created StarCon but it is thought to be a test project for a future service to be offered by the nation's telecoms operator.

Soon after being discovered, the site was hacked and it is now not accessible.
