Kim Il Sung’s Hyangsan Palace demolished

Building Kim Il Sung reported to have died in razed, replaced with young trees

Newly released Google Earth satellite imagery reveals that Kim Il Sung's secluded Hyangsan palace – the building he reportedly died in – has been torn down.

Unfortunately, due to the length of time between the two satellite photos, it is not possible to determine exactly when it was demolished or how long the job took.
