North Korea Reports ‘Severe’ Accident at Construction Site

The official North Korean news agency reported a “severe” accident that took place last week at a Pyongyang construction site and claimed the lives of many workers and led to a large-scale rescue mission. A death toll has not been reported.

The news agency announced that the country’s leader, Kim Jong-un, “Lay awake all night long and shared to sorrow of the families affected.” North Korean media almost never reports events that can be interpreted as being negative.
