North Korea in early May began the construction of a new building at the Ministry of People’s Security compound, having demolished a three-story structure that had long stood at the site.

One of the top three law enforcement organs of North Korea, the Ministry of People’s Security provides bodyguards for the country's elites and operates the country's prison system - among other duties.
