Kim Jong-Un Orders Execution of Top Military Officers over Failed Missile Test

Kim Jong-un has reportedly executed two top officials in just five days over mishaps at North Korea’s test missile site.

The latest unnamed executive was killed after he allegedly took responsibility for setbacks at the Punggye-ri nuclear base, which led to the date of a rocket launch being pushed back.

Five days ago, a high-ranking official once described as the ‘second most powerful man in North Korea’ disappeared from public life, sparking speculation he too may have been executed by death squads.

General Hwang Pyong-so once held the most senior military position in the hermit state as a Vice-Marshall after the supreme leader.

The most recent victim was said to be the director of Bureau 131, in charge of construction at Kim’s missile and nuclear bases.

Back in September, at least 200 workers were reportedly killed when a tunnel collapsed shortly after the detonation of an H-bomb.

It has been claimed the nuclear base, situated in the North Korean mountains, is falling into disrepair after being struck by earthquakes and landslides due to repeated nuke blasts.

A source told Japanese paper Asahi Shimbun: “It seems he took the blame as the prolonged mining of the nuclear facility pushed back the test date to September when it was initially set for spring.”

Kim has executed more than 340 people since he came to power – and that doesn’t include untold numbers sent to gulags or labour camps.

The so-called tubby tyrant is said to have been reshaping North Korea’s ruling elite in recent months as he fears the military is becoming too powerful.

He has also launched dozens of missiles this year, as well as detonating the hydrogen bomb on September 3.

Earlier this month Kim was pictured on top of a mountain he previously ‘climbed’ before executing top officials – sparking fears he was about to do the same again.

The tyrant visited the significant Mount Paektu, seen as mystical and situated not far from North Korea’s nuclear testing facilities, where Kim goes to make important decisions.

In 2016 he was pictured on the mountain before carrying out a huge nuclear test.

In April 2015 he visited the mountain then executed former defence chief Hyon Yong-chol.

In November 2013 he visited the mountain before killing uncle and political guardian Jang Song-thaek.

  1. I?m amazed, I need to state. Actually seldom do I run into a blog that?s both informative as well as enjoyable, and let me tell you, you have actually struck the nail on the head. Your concept is impressive; the concern is something that inadequate people are speaking intelligently about. I am really happy that I came across this in my look for something connecting to this.

  2. A fascinating discussion deserves comment. I assume that you should compose a lot more on this subject, it might not be a frowned on subject but normally individuals are inadequate to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers

  3. I?m pleased, I have to claim. Truly hardly ever do I encounter a blog that?s both informative and enjoyable, as well as let me inform you, you have actually struck the nail on the head. Your idea is impressive; the issue is something that not nearly enough people are talking intelligently around. I am very satisfied that I stumbled across this in my search for something connecting to this.
