According to Reuters, a rights group said that North Korea conducts public executions to incite fear among the public, in a report pinpointing at least 323 sites used by the government for capital punishment.
The report by the TJWG is the result of four years of research and interviews with more than 600 North Korean.
A TJWG research director said that “Public executions are to remind people of particular policy positions that the state has.
According to a confidential UN report, North Korea is pressing on with its nuclear weapons program and several countries believe it has "probably developed miniaturized nuclear devices to fit into the warheads of its ballistic missiles." Gloria Tso reports.
