North Korea denies orchestra executions, offering no proof

The Pyongyang government has finally issued an angry denial of reports last month that two concertmasters of the Unhasu orchestra, together with ten others, were executed for alleged pornography. The original reports were reinforced this weekend by Japan’s Asahi Shimbun, which has spoken to ‘ a high-ranking North Korean government official who recently defected’.

Pyongyang has also posted denials on its Youtube site. However, it has not presented proof that the supposedly executed musicians are still alive.

    “Onion?”

    Don’t the North Koreans realize Kim’s “see-through” hat is very scandalous?
