In North Korea, while Kim Jong Un is spending a fortune on two rocket launches in recent months and taken food away from the farming provinces of North and South Hwanghae to feed the people in the capital of Pyongyang, reports claim starving villagers in the provinces have resorted to cannibalism.
After the food was confiscated for residents of the capital, a drought followed, killing as many as 10,000 people in those provinces.
One man was executed when it was discovered he had killed his two children and eaten them. Another man reportedly dug up his grandchild’s body and ate it. A third boiled his own child to be eaten.
Last year, according to the South Korean state-run Korean Institute for National Unification, one North Korean man was executed when he attempted selling the remains of a colleague as mutton. There were two other reports of cannibalism.
