North Korean leader Kim Jong-un fed his powerful uncle to 120 hungry dogs, according to a detailed report in a newspaper with close ties to China’s ruling Communist Party and reported by the Straits Times.
From the Strait Times:
According to the report … Jang was stripped naked and thrown into a cage, along with his five closest aides. Then 120 hounds, starved for three days, were allowed to prey on them until they were completely eaten up. This is called “quan jue”, or execution by dogs.
It is the latest surprising anecdote involving Kim, who has acted belligerently since taking over as Supreme Leader at the end of 2011.
Kim reportedly executed allies of his powerful uncle by firing squad of antiaircraft machine guns over a business dispute.
In August a major South Korean newspaper reported that North Korean singer Hyon Song-wol, known as Kim’s ex-girlfriend, had reportedly been executed by a firing squad.
