Executed with anti-aircraft gun for sleeping on the job

Hyon Yong-chol, the Armed Forces Minister of North Korea, was publicly executed in front of an audience of hundreds of people at a shooting-range at Pyongyang’s Kang Kon Military Academy using high-caliber gunfire from a four-barreled anti-aircraft weapon. His execution was apparently ordered by Kim Jong-un, the Supreme Leader of North Korea, as punishment for falling asleep during a meeting.
