"The company charged with finishing the Ryugyong is Orascom Telecom, part of an Egyptian conglomerate that took on the rebuilding work - "in partnership with a local firm" - as part of a $400m deal to build and run a 3G mobile phone network in North Korea."
Orascom Telecom are also a major provider in Iraq from what I remember. Somebody told me that they are commonly believed to be behind the sabotaging of the countries communications infrastructure (ie. blowing up exchanges) to drive demand for mobile telephone services. Allegedly. I don't know...people talk...
