Pyongyang: North Korea has reportedly executed its education minister Kim Yong-jin for allegedly sleeping during a meeting of Kim Jong-Un.
Kim along with another official was killed by a firing squad early this month, a media report said.
The education minister was reportedly also implicated in a corruption case.
Early this month, North Korea's deputy ambassador Thae Yong-ho took asylum in South Korean embassy in London.
North Korea has alleged the involvement of Thae Yong-ho in several cases of fraud, physical assault on children and passing on secret information to the enemies of the country.
Some Indian politicians, who have been found sleeping in parliament, should thank God that they are born in India.
