North Korean leader Kim Jong-un reportedly executed a general accused of plotting a coup by throwing him into a piranha-filled fish tank.
The unnamed general was said to be the latest victim of the dictatorial leader, who has executed numerous aides, including his envoy to the US in May.
The general was allegedly killed inside a giant piranha tank built inside Kim's Ryongsong Residence, in Pyongyang, after being accused of plotting a coup
It is claimed the general had his arms and torso cut open with knives before being thrown into the tank, which was filled with hundreds of piranhas imported from Brazil
However, it is unclear whether the general was killed by the carnivorous fish, died from his earlier wounds, or drowned
The meat-eating fish have razor-sharp teeth which can tear the flesh from a corpse in a matter of minutes
