North Korea’s young new leader, Kim Jong-un, has instituted a novel method of executing military officers — mortar firing squad, South Korea’s leading daily newspaper reported Tuesday.

The 20-something Mr. Kim ordered a military officer to be executed in a way that would leave “no trace of him behind, down to his hair,”

When I read the title, I though they used "mortar firing squad" to kill a big number of people in the same time, not one person.
Remember the "Khmer Rouge" - Cambodia ? They used a plastic bag over the head of the victim to suffocate him/her, in order to save a bullet.

1. It's quite old news (March 2012) - and AFAIK mortars aren't that accurate as to guarantee the "traceless" execution!
2. It seems to me quite stoopid and useless, from the cycle "Ce face Dorel când n-are ce face" ("What one does when one has nothing to do")... but then again communism tends to imbecilize people, so we can excuse them.
3. Alcohol kills! :D

Considering that North Korea is closed to outsiders, all of this can be pure fabrication. For example, you can write a similar article in which you state that North Korea carries out executions by forced kitten-huffing and no one can contrardict you or double-ckeck it. :D
