Activity at Kaesong Industrial Complex points to possible factory restart: Seoul

New activity at the inter-Korean complex comes weeks after a mysterious fire at the facility

South Korea’s Ministry of Unification (MOU) said it has detected new activity at the Kaesong Industrial Complex (KIC), suggesting North Korea has restarted some factories there without permission from their South Korean proprietors. 

The MOU's announcement on Monday comes over two weeks after it said that a fire broke out at the South Korean-built complex located on the North Korean side of the border.
