Scores, if not hundreds, of people are feared dead or seriously injured after a 23-storey block of flats collapsed in North Korea in what officials surprisingly conceded was an 'unimaginable accident'.

It is highly unusual for the secretive Stalinist state to publicly announce negative incidents. But on this occasion the official KCNA news agency not only revealed the tragedy but also spoke of an 'intensive' emergency rescue effort being carried out to rescue survivors and treat the wounded.

Leader Kim Jong-un was said to be so upset that he had been unable to sleep.
