SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korea executed five senior security officials with anti-aircraft guns because they made false reports that "enraged" leader Kim Jong Un, South Korea's spy agency said Monday.

The comments by the National Intelligence Service in a private briefing to lawmakers come as Malaysia investigates the poisoning death of Kim's estranged elder half brother, Kim Jong Nam. That investigation is still going on, but South Korea says it believes Kim Jong Un ordered the assassination, which took place Feb. 13 at Kuala Lumpur's airport.

The spy agency told lawmakers that five North Korean officials in the department of recently purged state security chief Kim Won Hong were executed by anti-aircraft guns because of the false reports to Kim, South Korean lawmaker Lee Cheol Woo said. It's not clear what false reports they allegedly made, and the NIS didn't say how it got its information.

Could you imagine facing the death penalty with one of these in front of you?!

Why would being killed by this gun be any worse than another type of gun?
Granted the end result is still the same (death), at least your body would most likely still be intact after being shot at with rounds designed to kill people, as opposed to rounds designed to shred aircraft to pieces. Then again, since you're dead either way, it doesn't really matter :idunno:.

Didn't he do this a year or two ago? It can't be very cost effective

Level of fear and also just the sheer fact that it is inhumane.

Sure, the end result is the same, but I'd think it is a lot more frightening of a way to go out, knowing your body is about to literally be blown up into 1,000,000 different pieces as opposed to getting shot a few times by a firing squad or shot once in the head.
