The Jang Song Thaek family was recently executed under order of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. New reports this week announce that the mass murder in which a number of Jong-un’s relatives were shot to death at gunpoint was said to be completed so that all of North Korea would know the punishment for “mutiny” against the Asian leader. The Epoch Times confirms this Monday, Jan. 27, 2014, that neither women nor children were spared from the swift and brutal executions.

Sources confirm that all direct relatives and family members of convicted “traitor” and uncle Jang Song Thaek have been executed in North Korea. This killing includes the political ambassadors of North Korea to both Malaysia and to Cuba. One insider for Yonhap News Agency noted that some victims were shot to death by a pistol as an outward act of intimidation and power.

“Some relatives were shot to death by pistol in front of other people … And if they resisted while being dragged out of their apartment homes.”

According to the press release on this revenge for the alleged "mutiny," the executed relatives of the Jang Song Thaek family include Thaek’s sister Jang Kye-Sun as well as her husband Jon Yong-jin (he served as ambassador to Cuba). Dictator Kim Jong-un also had his nephew Jang Yong-choi killed. Yong-choi was the Malaysian ambassador at the time of his death.

Although the confirmed news of the executions have only reached many ears here in the U.S. public this week, all of the close relatives to Kim Jong-Un and those suspected of “mutiny” — or even being associated with the convicted traitor and uncle Jang Song Thaek — were said to have been executed on Dec. 12, 2013.

“Those spared from the brutal executions include some relatives by marriage, including the wife of Yong-choi, even though their two young children were not spared. ... The executions of Jang’s relatives mean that no traces of him should be left,” a source said. “The purge of the Jang Song-thaek people is under way on an extensive scale from relatives and low-level officials.”

The threat of North Korean war missiles and declarations of potential nuclear war have also been made by Kim Jong-un this Jan. 2014 toward both the U.S. and South Korea.
