“All the direct relatives, including children, of Jang Song Thaek, the late uncle of Kim Jong-un who was put to death on December 12 2013, have been executed in North Korea, according to South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency.
“’Multiple sources’ told Yonhap, a publicly funded news agency, that entire families related to Thaek have been executed.”
From last summer:
“South Korean newspaper Chosun Ilbo has reported that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un’s ex-girlfriend was among a group of North-Koreans executed by firing squad on August 20.
“Citing sources from China, the paper said singer Hyon Song-wol and several other performers were executed in public for violating pornography laws.
“The group is said to have included members of the Unhasu Orchestra as well as other singers, musicians and dancers with the Wangjaesan Light Music Band.
“They were found guilty of filming themselves having sex and then selling the videos.
An unconfirmed Chinese source said: ‘They were executed with machine guns while the key members of the Unhasu Orchestra, Wangjaesan Light Band and Moranbong Band as well as the families of the victims looked on.’
“The source also reported that the families of the executed people seemed to have been sent away to prison camps, following the country’s ‘guilty by association’ law.”
