Default 80 People Executed in North Korea

80 People Executed in North Korea

Quote:
North Korea’s Kim Jong-Un had 80 people publicly executed on November 3, according to Korea’s Joongang Daily News. It’s the first known public executions since he took power after his father’s death.

In seven cities across North Korea, people who had watched South Korean videos, “pornography” or possessed Bibles were killed. The executions took place in Wonsan in Kangwon Province, Chongjin in North Hamgyong Province, Sariwon in North Hwanghae Province and Pyongsong in South Pyongan. According to the newspaper, about ten people were killed in each city.
"Pornography":

Quote:
Back in August of 2013, MisguidedChildren reported that the North Korean regime strictly prohibits the possession of Christian videos and Bibles, often calling them “pornography.”
