North Korea’s former top female spy has revealed how she was snatched from her family to serve the secretive state – then asked to blow up a civilian plane that killed 115 people.
Kim Hyun-hee, who tried to kill herself with poison after her capture by the South Koreans and later escaped the death sentence, spoke out to try to attack her former Communist government bosses as warmongers.
Speaking at a secret location in South Korea, the 51-year-old former terrorist said she believes all the latest threats from Pyongyang are nothing more than attempts to shore up support for the new young leader, Kim Jong-un.
‘Kim Jong-un is too young and too inexperienced,’ she said. ‘He’s struggling to gain complete control over the military and to win their loyalty.
‘That’s why he’s doing so many visits to military bases – to firm up support.’ She said there were good reasons for the North threatening a thermo-nuclear war.
