Seoul: North Korea has publicly executed the country s defence minister after the regime accused him of treason, said a media report. Hyon Yong-chol, the chief of North Korea s People s Armed Forces, was executed by firing squad using an anti-aircraft gun at a military school in Pyongyang around April 30,

Yonhap News Agency reported quoting South Korea s National Intelligence Service (NIS) on Wednesday. Hyon was seen dozing off during a military event and did not carry out North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un s instructions, an NIS senior official agency said.

The intelligence agency also gave a similar briefing to lawmakers in a closed-door parliamentary session on Wednesday.
