North Korea’s defense chief, Hyon Yong Chol, has been executed for falling asleep at an event attended by Kim Jong-Un.

He was executed using anti-aircraft guns, as punishment for showing disrespect to the dictator.

The claims, made by South Korea’s National Intelligence Service, also alleged that another of Hyon’s deeds that led to his execution was talking back to Kim.

It said hundreds of officials watched the execution on 30 April at a shooting range at a Pyongyang military academy, adding that the satellite images indicated a viewing area had been set up for party officials and VIPs to watch the killings.
