Major construction accident occurs in Pyongyang, state media reports

Officials publicly accept blame; state media emphasizes leadership's sympathy and resolve

A serious accident occurred at a construction site in the Phyonchon district of Pyongyang on May 13, KCNA reported on Saturday.

The accident, which took place at the construction site of an apartment building, occurred because the construction “was not done properly and officials supervised and controlled it in an irresponsible manner.”
