      New leisure facilities and a train station for Chinese tourists are being built in the North Korean city of Sinuiju, according to a pundit.

      A satellite photo (top) on Google Earth on Sept. 3, 2015 shows new facilities on a reclaimed land in Sinuiju, North Korea, while in another taken on March 13 the site was empty.

      Curtis Melvin at the U.S.-Korea Institute at Johns Hopkins University said Google Earth satellite images from September show a hotel, a swimming pool, a shopping center and a dock being built.
