(Hong Kong) -- A story that reported the uncle of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un was executed using wild dogs is apparently false. A Chinese newspaper originally reported that the 30-year-old communist leader had his uncle killed in a public execution that used wild dogs. However, the story actually appears to be a satirical post on a Chinese blog that was used as the source. The blog said Kim ordered his uncle and five of his close aides to be stripped naked and thrown into a cage to be eaten alive by a pack of more than 100 hungry dogs. The story gained worldwide attention and painted Kim as even more brutal than previously believed.
