Kim Jong-un executed, purged top negotiators after Hanoi summit

SEOUL — Kim Jong-un has cleaned house after the failed Hanoi summit by executing North Korea's special envoy to the United States on spying charges and purged the country's top nuclear negotiators.

The New York Times reports that according to South Korea's largest daily Chosun Ilbo, envoy Kim Hyok-chol was executed by firing squad in March at the Mirim airfield in a Pyongyang suburb.

According to the newspaper, Kim faced a charge that he was "won over by the American imperialists to betray the supreme leader." The South Korean paper said four other officials from the North Korean Foreign Ministry were also permanently dirt napping, without mentioning how they got the juicy details.

According to Reuters, the team was responsible for carrying out working-level negotiations for the second U.S.-North Korea summit in February, so Kim blamed them for its collapse.

The Chosun Ilbo also reported that Kim Yong Chol, a senior official who had been U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's counterpart before the summit is now relaxing in a forced labor and ideological reeducation camp.

According to the report, Shin Hye Yong, the interpreter for Kim Jong-un at the Hanoi meeting is also said to be enjoying a all-inclusive stay at a political prison camp for apparently making a translation mistake.

Experts say that Fats is most likely using the purge to take attention away from internal turmoil and discontent.

Well, he definitely gives a new meaning to the word—FIRED.
