"VERY FINE PEOPLE":

Report: North Korea executed top officials after Kim-Trump summit failed (Catherine Garcia, May 30, 2019, The Week)

After his February summit with President Trump ended early and without a deal, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un launched an internal government purge, executing five top officials, South Korea's Chosun Ilbo newspaper reports.

He blamed the Hanoi summit's collapse on Kim Hyok Chol, special envoy to the United States, and four other foreign ministry officials who carried out working-level negotiations, a person with knowledge of the matter told Chosun Ilbo. The officials were all accused of spying for the United States, and executed by a firing squad in March.
