Kim Jong-Un Executed His Uncle By Feeding Him to "Cage of Starved Dogs"

By Gerald Lynch on at

We're well aware that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un is more than a bit crazy, but if you were under any illusions that he'd avoided inheriting his father's evil streak, this will come as a bit of a shock; Remember his recently-executed uncle? Yeah, he had him fed to dogs.

Revealed as part of the state leader's annual New Year's address, Kim Jong-Un's uncle General Jang Song-Thaek was stripped naked along with five of his closest aides and made to enter a cage filled with "120 hounds, starved for three days". It took the dogs a whole hour to finish the gruesome execution.

This method of execution (known to North Korean's as "quan jue") was chosen over a traditional firing squad due to the "hideous" alleged crimes of the late general, formerly considered the second most powerful person in the secretive nation. What exactly those crimes are is yet to be fully determined (and may never be), but have been described by the North Korean leader to include building splinter groups with "scum elements" in the party, and "all sorts of intrigues and despicable methods with a wild ambition to grab the supreme power of our party and state.” [Standard]
