Over 100 South Korean-owned cars no longer visible at Kaesong Industrial Complex

Satellite imagery reveals cluster of vehicles nowhere to be seen

More than a hundred South Korean cars once parked at the now-closed Kaesong Industrial Complex (KIC) have gone missing, satellite imagery showed on Tuesday, suggesting they may have been repurposed by the North Koreans and are being used elsewhere.

KIC, once a rare symbol of inter-Korean economic cooperation, was temporarily closed by the Seoul government in February last year, as part of Seoul’s response to Pyongyang’s fourth nuclear test earlier that year.
