North Korean leader Kim Jong-un ordered the execution of 15 senior officials this year as punishment for challenging his authority, South Korea’s spy agency has told a closed-door parliament meeting.
A vice minister for forestry was one of the officials executed for complaining about a state policy, a member of parliament’s intelligence committee, Shin Kyung-min, quoted an unnamed National Intelligence Service official as saying.
“Excuses or reasoning doesn’t work for Kim Jong-un, and his style of rule is to push through everything, and if there’s any objection, he takes that as a challenge to authority and comes back with execution as a showcase,” Mr Shin said.
“In the four months this year, 15 senior officials are said to have been executed,” Mr Shin cited the intelligence official as saying, according to his office :: Read the full article »»»»

North Korean leader Kim Jong-il, revered at home by a propaganda machine that turned him into a demi-God and vilified in the West as a temperamental tyrant with a nuclear arsenal, has died, state television reported. Kim, who was 69 years old, died on Saturday, it said. Kim was the unchallenged head of the oppressive state whose economy fell deeper into poverty during his years in power.
Kim vexed the world by developing a nuclear arms program and an arsenal of missiles aimed to hit neighbours Japan and South Korea, while at home, his people suffered the degradation of near starvation. Kim had been portrayed as a criminal mastermind behind deadly bombings, a jovial dinner host, a comic buffoon in Hollywood movies and by the administration of former US president George W Bush as the ruler of “an outpost of tyranny”.
In August 2008 Kim suffered a stroke, but was thought to have recovered. It si believed his death was due to a heart attack, though North Korean Media is reporting that his death was due to fatigue.
Known at home as “the Dear Leader”, Kim took over North Korea in 1994 when his father and founder of the reclusive state Kim Il-sung, known as “the Great Leader”, died :: Read the full article »»»»

The campground will be closed from Monday through Friday of next week based on “new evidence of plague activity in animals”, Karen Smith, director of the California department of public health, said in a statement :: Read the full article »»»»
