North Korean parents 'eat their own children' driven mad by Famine

submit to reddit

Chubby North Korean communist dictator Kim Jong Un has plenty of food while the people are starving to death and to the point of being driven to madness and cannibalism.

A starving man in North Korea has been executed after murdering his two children for food, reports from inside the secretive state claim.

A ‘hidden famine’ in the farming provinces of North and South Hwanghae is believed to have killed up to 10,000 people and there are fears that incidents of cannibalism have risen.

The grim story is just one to emerge as residents battle starvation after a drought hit farms and shortages were compounded by party officials confiscating food.

Undercover reporters from Asia Press told the Sunday Times that one man dug up his grandchild’s corpse and ate it. Another, boiled his own child for food.

Despite reports of the widespread famine, Kim Jong Un, 30, has spent vast sums of money on two rocket launches in recent months.

There are fears he is planning a nuclear test in protest at a UN Security Council punishment for the recent rocket launches and to counter what it sees as US hostility.

One informant was quoted as saying: ‘In my village in May a man who killed his own two children and tried to eat them was executed by a firing squad.’

The informant said the father killed his eldest daughter while his wife was away on business and then killed his son because he had witnessed the murder.

When his wife returned the man told her they had ‘meat’ but she became suspicious and contacted officials who discovered part of the children’s bodies.

Jiro Ishimaru, from Asia Press, which compiled a 12 page report, said: ‘Particularly shocking were the numerous testimonies that hit us about cannibalism.’

Undercover reporters said food was confiscated from the two provinces and given to the residents of the capital Pyongyang.

A drought then left food supplies desperately short.

Cannibalism has also been reported in the vast network of prison camps inside North Korea, such as Camp 22, pictured, where 50,000 are believed to be imprisoned

The Sunday Times also quoted an official of the ruling Korean Worker’s party as saying: ‘In a village in Chongdan county, a man who went mad with hunger boiled his own child, ate his flesh and was arrested.

United Nations officials visited the area during a state-sponsored trip but local reporters said it is unlikely they were shown the famine-hit areas.

It has not the first time that reports of cannibalism have come out of the country.

In May last year, the South Korean state-run Korean Institute for National Unification said that one man was executed after eating part of a colleague and then trying to sell the remains as mutton.

One man killed and ate a girl and a third report of cannibalism was recorded from 2011.

Another man was executed in May after murdering 11 people and selling the bodies as pork.

There were also reports of cannibalism in the country’s network of prison camps.

North Korea was hit by a terrible famine in the 1990s – known as the Arduous March – which killed between 240,000 and 3.5million people.

    I blame Communist China.

    Such an obstacle to dealing with the issue… then again I also blame Iran for befriending such a country with it’s fairly recent weapons talks.

      Agree on blaming China. Without them helping, there would be no NK. I wouldn’t blame Iran though, they wouldn’t lift a finger if NK is attacked. They just feel sympathy towards NK because of the west pressure.
      What everyone should take from this is, if NK was muslim country, they’d be bombed many times over by now.

      You can blame only USA. It is a country living on lies and feeding the whole world with lies first of all!
      China has nothing to do with hungy people in NK. And China IS NOT a comminist country. It is a mix of capitalism and socialism. Not communism. You have not knowledge what communism means. Watch this:

    What about ending the embargo and menacing their sovreignity everyday, wich forces them to have means to defend themselves?
    And about those rumors, what about some source pointing to the facts?
    And talking about prision camps, US has around 2 milions people on them. So why being so hypocrite pointing out other countires problems when we are even worse then them?

    It is every person on this planets fault. THERE IS enough food to go around. It is being hoarded by all of us. Look how much countries like canada and us and even uk and europe WASTE each year. No programs to delegate resources efficiently, just money. FUCK CURRENCY. When it comes to food we should all get plentiful amounts because we can.

    Most importantly do the Koreans slaughter and prepare the children Kosher as we do with Gentile children when making hamantash for Purim?

    I’m from the Philippines, but I live in the US now. When I eat in the Philippines, I always finish my food, here some people take food and don’t even eat it.
