REPORT: North Korean nuke scientist kills himself


There’s a story coming out of North Korea Friday, which shows how dangerous it is for North Koreans under the rule of the country’s rogue leader.

Fox News is reporting that a North Korean nuclear scientist who fled the country while taking time off from work to deal with “anxiety over his research projects” has killed himself inside a prison cell after being recaptured in China and sent back over the border, according to a report.

“The defector worked as a researcher in the State Academy of Sciences in Pyongyang and was part of a group of North Koreans caught in Shenyang in early November, a source inside the reclusive country told Radio Free Asia. They were sent back from the northern Chinese city to North Korea on Nov. 17 and the scientist reportedly died by taking poison while awaiting interrogation.

“He killed himself only a few hours after he was placed in solitary confinement at the State Security Department in Sinuiju city” the source said.

“He died before he could be questioned about the reasons for his escape, who had helped him, and what his route had been,” the source added.”
