    Hyon Yong Chol was charged with treason after nodding off during the event, and was executed by a firing squad using anti-aircraft guns

    Brutal: The defence chief was executed on Kim's orders
    North Korea's defence chief has been brutally executed because he fell asleep at a military event, intelligence officials have confirmed.

    The dictatorship's defence minister Hyon Yong Chol was accused of showing 'disrespect' to the evil regime's leader Kim Jong-Un, and was charged with treason.

    It is understood that hundreds of state officials watched his execution, carried out last month by a firing squad using anti-aircraft weapons.

    The information was retrieved from the secretive regime by South Korea's National Intelligence Service, which understands that 15 senior North Korean officials were executed in April for questioning Kim Jong-Un's authority.

    Satellite images have previously revealed how North Korea's brutal regime is using anti-aircraft guns for executions.

    The photos, released by the Committee for Human Rights in North Korea (HRNK) and AllSource Analysis, were taken in October last year showing the Kanggon Military Training Area, based not far from capital city Pyongyang.

    In the images, six ZPU-4 anti-aircraft guns were used to shoot a line of peoplelocated 100 yards away.

    Greg Scarlatiou, executive director of HRNK, said: "The gut-wrenching viciousness of such an act would make 'cruel and unusual punishment' sound like a gross understatement.



    "Public executions are one of the dreadful tools employed in the implementation of the Kim Jong-un regime's 'fearpolitik'."



    Since taking power upon the death of his dictator father in late 2011, Kim has orchestrated a series of purges in apparent efforts to bolster his grip on power.






    Analysts are split on whether the bloody power shifts indicate a young leader in firm control, or someone still struggling to establish himself.

    The most notable purge was in 2013 when Kim executed his uncle and chief deputy, Jang Song Thaek, for alleged treason.

    Koh Yu-hwan, a North Korea expert at Dongguk University in Seoul, said Kim Jong-Un appears to be using purges to keep the military old guard in check as they pose the only plausible threats to his rule.

    He said Kim could be resorting to a "reign of terror" to solidify his leadership but that would eventually have only a limited effect if he fails to produce breakthroughs in resolving the country's economic woes.

    Doesn't seem like such a bad way to go. Better than hanging or having your head chopped off with a dull knife.
