EXCLUSIVE: Photos confirm date of North Korea building collapse

Four day search, rescue and clean-up operation may have come at risk to survivors

Photos exclusively obtained by NK News provide independent corroboration to North Korean claims that a Pyongyang apartment block collapsed on May 13, confirming the subsequent search, rescue and clean-up operation was completed in under just four days.

But such a rapid rescue and clean-up operation, experts told NK News, could mean the lives of survivors were put at risk, raising questions as to why North Korean authorities pushed to clear the area so rapidly.
