North Korea’s Famine Is So Bad That People Are Turning To Cannibalism
World

North Korea is in such a devastating famine, that there have been reports of cannibalism, some families even cooking and eating their own children to survive.

According to a network of “citizen journalists” within North Korea, a “hidden” famine has caused the deaths of approximately 10,000 people.

The conditions are so bad, that many are resorting to cannibalism.

According to one report, “a man who killed his own two children and tried to eat them was executed by a firing squad.”

Another account describes a man being arrested for “digging up the grave of his grandchild and eating the remains.”

Since the government controls the media in North Korea, concrete information only comes from the underground reporters who risk their lives to get the word out.
