Cannibalism in North Korea
What if it wasn't just a rumor? A leaked official document raises concern.
Just when you thought North Korea couldn't get any more disturbing.
A leaked official police document reportedly details at least one case of cannibalism.
If true, the report would validate what has been rumored in the North for quite some time: that people are so hungry they are eating other people.
According to the Korea Herald:
The confidential, 791-page document, called a "Manual for workers in law enforcement," chronicles 721 criminal cases. The majority of cases involved food."The report, later obtained by South Korea's Caleb Mission, provided a rare look into the alleged cannibalism and other crimes, but it did not say whether cannibalism has become a widespread practice.
In one account, a male guard who could not bear his hunger killed his colleague using an ax, ate some of the human flesh and sold the remainder in the market by disguising it as mutton, the report said, without giving any further details such as when the alleged crime occurred."
Five of the cases, according to the International Business Times, involved cannibalism.
