Over 30 dead in tour bus accident in North Korea

Tens of thousands of Chinese tourists are believed to visit North Korea every year with many crossing through the Chinese border city of Dandong Over 30 dead in tour bus accident in North Korea

The wreck occurred in North Hwanghae province, south west of the capital Pyongyang, " the ministry said in a concise announcement. About 80 percent of all North Korea's foreign tourists are Chinese, the Korea Maritime Institute estimates.

The ministry provided few details but China's state broadcaster CGTN earlier tweeted that more than 30 people died when a tour bus fell from a bridge in North Korea.

"The Chinese Embassy in North Korea was informed by the DPRK that a serious traffic accident occurred on North Korea's Huanghai Road at night, causing heavy casualties to Chinese tourists", the statement said, adding that "relevant details are now being verified".

China's state TV have shown images of the bus mishap in North Korea.

The region includes the city of Kaesong, known for its ancient neighborhoods, and home to a large inter-Korean industrial area, where South Korean factories employed North Korean workers.

North Korea is a popular, if offbeat, tourist destination for Chinese, especially those from the country's northeast.

Antero Midstream GP LP (AMGP) Analysts See $0.11 EPS on May, 8
Among 2 analysts covering Antero Resources Midstream Management LL AMGP (NYSE:AMGP), 2 have Buy rating, 0 Sell and 0 Hold. The Groesbeck Investment Management Corp holds 73,000 shares with $1.22 million value, down from 175,000 last quarter.

The details are being verified and an embassy working group had rushed to the scene of the accident accompanied by officials from the DPRK Foreign Ministry, the release said.

North Korea attracts a significant number of Chinese tourists from its fellow communist neighbor, worth about $44 million in additional annual revenue to Pyongyang.

In contrast, Chinese tourism in North Korea remained strong, despite Beijing's enforcement of worldwide sanctions against the Kim Jong Un regime.

Chinese state television's English-language channel tweeted the news before later deleting the message.

It is estimated that tens of thousands of Chinese people visit the country every year, many traveling by train via the border town of Dandong.

However, like all highways and roads in North Korea, it records only extremely limited road traffic.
