Lights on at North Korea’s Ryugyong ‘hotel of doom’

Orascom's Monday visit to Pyongyang may have been related to building's future, source says

At least three rooms were illuminated by night at the top of the Pyongyang Ryugyong Hotel this October, suggesting construction may have resumed at the ill-fated pyramid-shaped building.

The development, captured in video exclusively obtained by NK News, is notable because there has been no sign of construction at the iconic structure since window panes and a telecommunications mast were added in 2011.
