One of the unfortunates was Ri Yong-jin, a senior official in the education ministry:
Ri, according to the source, "incurred the wrath of Kim after he dozed off during a meeting presided over by Kim. He was arrested on site and intensively questioned by the state security ministry. He was executed after other charges such as corruption were found during the probe."Good lord! I suppose if an official farts at a meeting they tie him over the mouth of a cannon.
