Disobeying North Korea leader Kim Jong Un.
Taking the splattering blast were a former agricultural minister who pushed for policy proposals that were seen as a direct challenge to Kim's leadership, and a senior official in the education ministry whose major offense was falling asleep during a meeting presided over by Kim.
The action took place at a military academy in Pyongyang early last month, according to a South Korean newspaper.
