Cannibalism Reported in Famine-Stricken North Korea

Numerous reports from North Korea indicate that starving residents of the isolated regime, where famine is an all-too-regular occurrence, may now be resorting to cannibalism. A man was put to death by firing squad after officials discovered he had killed and cooked two of his own children. He killed the eldest daughter and because his son saw what he had done, he killed his son as well.

Another unconfirmed report detailed the arrest of a man who allegedly dug up the body of his dead grandchild and ate the flesh. Elsewhere, a man killed and sold their remains as pork. Although cannibalism is a crime, the people are not to be the blame. They were put into dire situations that they had to resort to cannibalism. This is all North Korean regime's fault. The North Korean government ignored the well-being of its people and only focused on developing nuclear tests. Moreover, their top leaders are living a luxurious life.

1. "Another unconfirmed report details...."

 

Yeah?

Hm.

Sure now. That second paragraph you posted seems like fine journalism.
