Major event appears to be underway at Pyongyang venue: satellite imagery

North Korean state media did not report on the apparent event on Sunday, suggesting it will last multiple days

One of Pyongyang's biggest venues appeared to host a political meeting or other large event on Saturday and Sunday, exclusive NK News analysis of satellite imagery reveals, days after thousands of people appeared to gather at a key hotel in the North Korean capital.

Dozens of buses first appeared parked at the April 25 Hotel in southeast Pyongyang from Dec. 1 to 3, before appearing across town at the April 25 House of Culture on Dec. 4 and 5, according to Planet Labs imagery.
