Kim Jong-un had 11 musicians executed with anti-aircraft guns and orders aides to pick out sex slaves from North Korea’s schools, a defector has claimed, according to the Independent.
The third-generation dictator also has a number of luxury hideouts that shield him from the eyes of Western spies, the woman, 26, reportedly claimed.
She said she was among 10,000 people once forced to watch the execution of musicians accused of making a pornographic video, at Pyongyang’s military academy.
She told the Daily Mirror: “They were lashed to the end of anti-aircraft guns. Their bodies were blown to bits, totally destroyed, blood and bits flying everywhere.
“And then after that military tanks moved in and they ran over the bits on the ground where the remains lay.”
The woman escaped to China and then Seoul, South Korea, after her father died in 2015. His status in the regime, as a colonel in the North Korean military, afforded them some privileges and she even met Mr Kim at events, finding him “terrifying”, she told the site.
The dictator has teen girls removed from school to work at his hideouts as sex slaves, she claimed.
She said: “They take the prettiest and ensure they have straight, good legs.”
