Kim Jong-il's Palaces as Seen on Google Earth

The Daily Telegraph has published satellite images of North Korean leader Kim Jong-il's houses and of jails in the Stalinist country. The daily carried the images under the title "A bird's eye view of the prisons and palaces of Kim Jong-il's North Korea."

Images show Kim's Sinuiju palace complete with a private train station as well as a residence with a large swimming pool near Pyongyang. Other images show Pyongyang Golf Links, the North's only 18-hole golf course in Mt. Taesong; Kim's yacht moored at nearby Lake Taesong; and an ostrich farm and a chewing gum factory in Pyongyang.

"Looking closely at the images of North Korea using the Google Earth web service one can see evidence of not only [leader] Kim Jong-il's lavish lifestyle but also of the state's gulags and prison camps," the paper said.
