There have been more deaths in North Korea following the execution of an uncle of leader Kim Jong Un who was accused of betrayal.

Jang Song Thaek was executed by the regime in December.

Now his entire family, including children, are reported to have been killed.

Jang Song Thaek was a close adviser and mentor to the young leader, but was reportedly executed for considering a military coup. The Yonhap News Agency reports multiple sources said all relatives of Jang Song Thaek, including children and North Korea's ambassadors to Cuba and Malaysia, have been put to death at the leader's instruction. The executed relatives include Jang's sister Jang Kye-sun, her husband and Ambassador to Cuba Jon Yong-jin, and Ambassador to Malaysia Jang Yong-chol, who is a nephew of Jang, as well as his two sons, the sources said.

All of them were recalled to Pyongyang in early December and executed, they said. The sons, daughters and even grandchildren of Jang's two brothers were all executed, they said. It was unclear exactly when they were killed, but they are believed to have been put to death after Jang's death on December 12.

"Some relatives were shot to death by pistol in front of other people if they resisted while being dragged out of their apartment homes," another source said.

1. ...and then they presumably shot the witnesses.

But they play a mean game of basketball.

4. North Korea has always been loopy.. Even worse now.

My guess is that the locals probably know nothing of executing children

3. The crimes of the father are cast down on his children, and his children's children.

That sounds Biblical. Maybe. But this is Kim Jong Un. (What a stupid name. Whatta they call him? Hey Un!!!! -- probably get fed to wolves for saying that, too.)

That guy is a lunatic.

He's also:

8. He should join the civilized world and execute entire families via drones.

Executing them the traditional way is so last century.
