North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un’s former girlfriend has been reportedly shot by firing squad over alleged involvement in a porn scandal.
Kim Jong-un’s singer ex-girlfriend Hyon Song-wol was gunned down in front of her family just three days after being arrested for breaching North Korean pornography laws.
According to News.com.au, Hyon was among a dozen well-known performers executed with machineguns as they were accused of filming themselves having sex and selling tapes.
A source said the accused 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 families of the executed have allegedly been sent to prison camps under the rogue country's guilt by association laws.
The report said that Kim and Hong dated until his despot dad Kim Jong-il ordered their relationship to end.
Another report said Kim Jong-un has been viciously eliminating anyone who he deems a challenge to his authority adding that the executions show that he is fixated on consolidating his leadership, the report added.
