at tonight's dinner party menu!"
Undercover reporters say one man dug up his grandchild's corpse and ate it. Another, boiled his own child for food. One informant said: "In my village a man killed his own two children and tried to eat them. He was executed by a firing squad." The informant said the father killed his eldest daughter while his wife was away on business, and then killed his son because he had witnessed the murder. When his wife returned, the man told her they had 'meat' but she became suspicious and contacted officials who discovered part of the children's bodies.
There're reports that food has been confiscated from the farmers and given to the residents of the capital Pyongyang. UN officials visited the area during a state-sponsored trip but it's unlikely they were shown the famine-hit areas.
It's not the first time reports of cannibalism have come out of DPRK. In May last year, the South Korean state-run Korean Institute for National Unification said one man was executed after eating part of a colleague and then trying to sell the remains as mutton. One man killed and ate a girl, and a third report of cannibalism was recorded from 2011.Another man was executed last May after murdering 11 people and selling the bodies as pork. There were also reports of cannibalism in the country's vast network of prison camps.
DPRK was hit by a terrible famine between 1994 and1998 - known as the "Arduous March" - which killed between 240K and 3.5million people.
