Colossal shopping complex close to completion in Pyongyang

Hundreds of N.Korean construction workers seen, with S.Korean "Hyundai"-made excavator

Hundreds of North Korean construction workers have been seen building a multi-story shopping complex in the country's capital - possibly the biggest ever made in North Korea.

The project was previously reported by NK News, and compared to the images released in August, recent photographs show that the exterior of the building is close to its completion, possible to be put into use in the near future.
