Senior North Korean officials have publicly apologized for an "unimaginable" accident at an apartment construction site, state media said Sunday, a rare admission of culpability by the secretive hard-line state.South Korean officials said the incident involved the collapse of a 23-storey apartment building in Pyongyang's Pyongchon district, which already had close to 100 families in residence.The accident happened last Tuesday and was the result of "irresponsible" supervision by officials in charge of construction, KCNA reported.A South Korean official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the incident involved the collapse of a 23-storey apartment complex.The official said 92 families were believed to be living in the collapsed building, and the final death toll was likely to be "considerable".The state-run Rodong Sinmun newspaper also published Sunday a rare photo of an unidentified official bowing deeply in apology towards hundreds of people who gathered at what appeared to be a construction site.
