A high-ranking military official inside North Korea’s communist regime was reportedly executed this week for “taking bribes,” with some inside the hermit kingdom saying he was “fed to dogs” following his sudden assassination.
According to Fox News, Hwang Pyong-so, a Vice Marshall in Kim’s million-man military, has been missing since mid-October; raising many questions over the fate of the highest-ranking soldier in the North Korean army.
South Korean news reported the Marshall’s disappearance months ago, with many speculating his fate after he was expelled from Kim’s General Politico Bureau and reportedly “punished” for bribery and multiple acts of “impure attitude.”
“If Hwang was indeed kicked out of the Workers’ Party, it would practically mean the end of his political career, and possibly his life, though it is unknown whether or not he is still alive,” South Korea’s JoongAng Ilbo reported.
North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un shocked the world earlier this month, when he successfully launched an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of striking the east coast of the United States.
In response, President Donald Trump warned the United States was prepared to “deal” with Kim’s nuclear threat, adding all options are on the table.
