Terrapin farm manager 'executed' after angering North Korea's Kim Jong-un - Telegraph

The officials tried to explain that a lack of electricity meant that water could not be pumped into the tanks, while there were also shortages of feed for the terrapins.
Mr Kim was additionally outraged that part of the farm had not been set aside to "educate employees in the revolutionary history" of Kim Jong-il, KCNA reported.
The dictator dismissed the officials' explanations, saying that "only sighs of defeatists come from units" that fail to "uphold and glorify the leadership exploits of the great leaders and the party".
He added that their excuses about problems with water, electrical supplies and equipment were "nonsensical complaints", the Daily NK web site reported.
Sources in Pyongyang told NK News that the manager of the terrapin farm was shot dead shortly after Mr Kim's visit.
