Tens of thousands of North Korean students have rallied in Pyongyang’s Kim Il Sung Square in the final major event of the country’s 70th anniversary.

The main event was a military parade on Sunday, which unlike the country’s previous two parades had no long-range missiles. The rally Monday night featured a sea of university and high school students carrying torches that spelled out giant slogans when seen from above the square.
    
Kim did not attend.
