In North Korea, Even Army Is Starving

Food shortages in North Korea have become so acute that even the traditionally well-fed military is starving, according to hidden camera footage from inside the impoverished communist state.

Based on the footage, shot by an undercover North Korean journalist, ABC News reports: “It is clear that the all-powerful army, once quarantined from food shortages and famine, is starting to go hungry.”

One soldier told the journalist: “Everybody is weak. Within my troop of 100 comrades, half of them are malnourished.”

The regime “used to put the military first, but now it can’t even supply food to its soldiers,” said Jiro Ishimaru, who trained the undercover reporter. “Rice is being sold in markets but they are starving. This is the most significant thing in this video.”
