SEOUL A South Korean newspaper reported Friday that North Korea executed a senior envoy involved in nuclear negotiations with the U.S. as well as four other high-level officials.
But as ever with North Korea, a country that closely guards its secrets, there are reasons to be cautious about the purported purge.
NBC News was not immediately able to independently verify the report. Kim Jong Un's regime also hasn't used its propaganda services to comment.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was asked about the report during a visit to Germany Friday.

What in the F???
Tell fat-boy we could just as easily NOT negotiate with him. Who would be next leader in charge?
Somebody call them and see if they answer the pkone.
I bet if we took out Kim the whole country would beg to re-unite with the south.
Just putting that out there.
N Korea is so warped that if we took out Kim they would nuke Seol.
Instead of mimicing European nations as to their nationalized healthcare; perhaps we could adopt one or more such practices from North Korea as to their intelligence failures and the people involved.
Just a thought.
Dead men tell no tales. Kim trusts no one.
For all practical purposes, it’s just as bad to be a high ranking official as it is a complete peasant. At least as a peasant you’re not on the radar.
The article says they can’t confirm the report but I wonder if at least some of the victims assured Kim that Trump would make a deal because he needs a deal for his political position.
Fat boy is under Putin’s influence again. Russia/Putin are our natural enemies.
Fake news. Smell it from a mile away.
I think they have been getting poor advice from some Obama era people(logan act) in an attempt to thwart Trump’s foreign policy. The same thing is going on with Iran. I guess in retrospect, maybe the Norks shouldn’t have heeded their advice.
Could work in Trump’s favor. Future NK officials may be shaking in their boots when approaching negotiating table. Or perhaps......
This wicked little beast-man is a monster.
He’s much worse than his father, or grandfather ever were because he was educated in the West, has experienced first hand the blessings of freedom and prosperity and when he had the privileged opportunity to bring this to his people, he instead became more evil and tyrannical than his predecessors ever were.
Little rocket boy is pure evil on steroids. Tagline
