North Korea photos

Russian photographer Artemii Lebedev has assembled some fascinating photographs he took during a trip to North Korea.

Give them a look at this link.

Pay attention to the first photo, and you'll see that North Korea is at the center of the painting on the wall. The third photo down features the infamous Ryugyong Hotel, which was never completed, presumably due to its high cost.

North Korea is essentially a cult in the form of a country. Kim Jong-il, the country's leader, is constantly praised while people starve and others are tortured and killed. It's estimated that between 600,000 and 3.5 million people died during the famine of the 1990s, and Amnesty International rates the country as one of the worst violators of human rights on the planet.
