Soldier dies while trying to steal construction materials for Kim Jong Un villa


A soldier stationed in North Pyongan Province who attempted to steal construction materials for the repair of a villa on Mount Myohyang belonging to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was killed after being pushed out of a train, North Korean sources report.

Despite the soldier’s death earlier this month, some 20 days have passed since the incident, as controversy continues over who is to blame for the man’s death.

“8th General Bureau soldiers were transporting the materials by train. When the train stopped at Kani Station in North Pyongan Province, a number of local soldiers ran over and began pulling materials out of the train,” said the source, who is based in Pyongyang.

The 8th General Bureau is an engineering unit focused on construction projects in Pyongyang and works on major national projects and repairs to villas owned by the leadership.

A fight broke out between the 8th General Bureau soldiers and local soldiers.

“The fight continued even after the train started moving and the 8th General Bureau soldiers pushed one of the local soldiers out of the train, and he died of his injuries from the fall,” a source in North Pyongan Province reported. ......
