North Korea, in rare admission, reports building collapse

North Korea says an apartment collapse in its capital city, Pyongyang, has left an unspecified number of deaths.

The rare admission of a disaster in the country also included a note that supreme leader Kim Jong Un ‘sat up all night’ feeling pain after learning about the disaster. Around 92 households were thought to be living in the apartment building.
