North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has executed 70 officials since taking power in late 2011 in a "reign of terror" which far exceeds the bloodshed of his dictator father's early rule, South Korean officials said.

Kind of an important distinction.

70 over 4 years is nothing compared to the kinds of purges the USSR, China, and other countries/kingdoms would see. Dynasties almost never last 3 hereditary successions, so to have to kill only 70 dudes means he is probably in pretty good shape. The reason he has to kill off any is to get rid of the old guard his father built up to make way for the new guard. Most will simply be retired but some are too powerful or too young, and examples must be made anyway.

Misleading title. It should say: Kim Jong Un 'executes 70 officials' since 2011.

Sorry to late to edit. I just used the same title as the original article.

Maybe a mod could edit or mark it as MT.

LOL. Sorry for sucking because I posted this.

Title should've said "in 2011". Not sure that mistake is spam.

It's spam because this stupid site makes you complete a survey just to read the article.

Use a legit news site next time.

I wonder how long this will go on before he loses the confidence of the military and is deposed.

Eh I was stupidly hoping then that he would not follow in his father's footsteps because he was schooled outside of NK.
