A North Korean Assassin Was Caught With These Lethal James Bond Gadgets

Last year South Korean officials stopped an assassination attempt on Park-Sang-hak, a North Korean Defector and anti-Pyongyang activist, arresting a North Korean Spy.

While this is old news, the weapons or, to be more exact, gadgets that were to be used in the assassination have just been revealed. And no, they are not from the latest James Bond movie.

Deadly: These innocuous looking pens are actually weapons employed by a would-be North Korean assassin assigned to kill Park Sang-hak, a pro-democracy activist.

What were the North Korean Spy’s weapons of choice? Two pens and a flashlight. The first pen was fitted with a hidden poison-tipped needle that, as a South Korean investigation official told CNN, would “cause muscle paralysis very quickly, which would lead to suffocation and death.”

The second pen was capable of shooting a bullet filled with the same muscle-paralyzing poison.

Potent: A second ‘pen’ weapon fires a poison-filled bullet which can pierce the skin.

When asked if this technology is somewhat new, the investigation official said that the technology has been around for about a decade. What he did find interesting, however, is the flashlight that the spy was caught carrying. The flashlight, which looks like a regular LED flashlight, was loaded with three bullets- seemingly new technology. The flashlight was tested and found to be very accurate and deadly.

Subterfuge: Instead of shining a light when switched on, the torch fires a bullet at its target.

Park-Sang-hak is the man behind the anti-regime propaganda leaflets delivered to North Korea via balloon. Park already knows that he is on top of North Koreas hit list and expects that there will be many more attempts on his life. Nevertheless, he plans to continue his work. He currently has 24-hour police protection.
