North Korea plans to partially open landmark hotel next year
SEOUL, Oct. 4 (Yonhap) -- North Korea plans to partially open a landmark hotel next April to mark the centennial of the birth of Kim Il-sung, the country's late founder, a source said Tuesday.

The move comes as the North is working on the interiors of the 105-story Ryukyong Hotel, which has stood unfinished in downtown Pyongyang for nearly 20 years due to a lack of capital.
