We are all aware of the tension between North and South Korea but today shattering news was shared with the internet as South Korea makes claims that North Korea has been executing people. It’s been said that North Korea has executed 80 people for everything ranging from immoral prostitution to other frivolous ideologies.
From the Huffington Post:
The conservative JoongAng Ilbo cited a single, unidentified source, but at least one North Korean defector group said it had heard rumours that lent credibility to the front-page report.
The source, said to be “familiar” with the North’s internal affairs and recently returned from the country, said the executions were carried out in seven cities on November 3.
In the eastern port of Wonsan, the authorities gathered 10,000 people in a sports stadium to watch the execution of eight people by firing squad, the source quoted one eyewitness as saying.
Most were charged with watching illicit South Korean TV dramas, and some with prostitution.
