North Korea clears strip of mountain near border, possibly for new guard post

Work may be for outpost, gun site or other military building, expert says, amid signs of border activity by two Koreas

North Korean workers are clearing a swath of a mountain directly opposite South Korea on the east coast, a video taken by NK News reveals, in what may be construction for an observation post or other military installation.

The video captured on Tuesday from the Goseong Unification Observatory near the Demilitarized Zone shows workers who appear to be wearing military uniforms standing in an area stripped of trees on the side of the mountain.
