North Korea building border ‘wall’, satellite images reveal

Satellite images have revealed that North Korea is constructing what appears to be a wall along its border with South Korea. The BBC Verify team has analysed these images, which also show that land inside the Demilitarised Zone has been cleared. This recent development raises concerns among experts, as it could potentially violate the long-standing truce between the two countries.

The construction of these structures was not visible in an image captured in November 2023, indicating that this activity is relatively recent. Experts describe this activity as “unusual”, particularly in the context of escalating tensions between North and South Korea.

This new development highlights the delicate and complex relationship between the two countries, and raises questions about the potential implications for future interactions. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
