North Korean crackpot Kim Jong Un appears to have stolen a page out of the ISIS execution manual.
A North Korean defector, whose father was a senior official in the hermit country’s regime, told the UK Mirror that she watched 11 musicians get “blown to bits” when they were executed with high powered anti-aircraft guns. The gruesome deaths, watched by 10,000 North Koreans, were ordered by Kim soon after he took over for his late father, Kim Jong-Il.
Hooded and gagged, the 11 musicians were forced to march into the stadium at the military academy in Pyongyang before being tied to the end of the big guns, a bloody method of execution that has been used by ISIS terrorists.
“What I saw that day made me sick in my stomach,” Hee Yeon Lim, 26, said, according to the Mirror. “A gun was fired, the noise was deafening, absolutely terrifying and the guns were fired one after the other. The musicians just disappeared each time the guns were fired into them. Their bodies were blown to bits, totally destroyed, blood and bits flying everywhere.
“And then after that military tanks moved in and they ran over the bits on the ground where the remains lay. The tracks of the tanks were run over the remains and blood repeatedly, over and over again and made to grind the remains, to smash them into the ground until there was nothing left.”
The musicians were executed after being accused of making a pornographic video.
Hee Yeon also said some of her teenage classmates, the “prettiest” girls, were snatched up and forced to work as Kim’s sex slaves, massaging him and feeding him luxury foods like caviar and other “extremely rare delicacies.” Any women who ticked off the chubby dictator, even those who became pregnant, would vanish, she said.
“Yes, they have to sleep with him and they cannot make a mistake or object because they could very easily simply disappear,” she said. “Everybody in Pyongyang openly supports Kim Jong-un because they would be killed if they didn’t. Even his inner-circle.
“You can be killed for the slightest thing like disloyalty.”
Hee Yeon fled North Korea in 2015 after her father, a colonel in Kim’s army, died.
