North Korea’s Kim Jong Un executed his uncle by dogs, according to the Straits Times.
The execution of Jan Song Thaek, who was the vice-chairman of the National Defense Commission, was carried out in December.
Wen Wei Po, the official mouthpiece of Beijing, wrote of its displeasure with the execution in a Dec. 12 report.
The Straits Times reported on the Wen Wei Po piece:
According to the report, unlike previous executions of political prisoners, which were carried out by firing squads with machine guns, 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.
The report said the entire process lasted for an hour, with Mr. Kim Jong Un, the supreme leader in North Korea, supervising it along with 300 senior officials.
The horrifying report vividly depicted the brutality of the young North Korean leader. The fact that it appeared in a Beijing- controlled newspaper showed that China no longer cares about its relations with the Kim regime.
