North Korean authorities executed the former Minister of Foreign Affairs of the DPRK, Lee Yong-ho, and several other people who held public office. This is reported by the Japanese newspaper Yomiuri, which refers to sources informed about the situation.

The execution was reportedly carried out between the summer and autumn of 2022. There is no exact information about the reasons for the verdict, but it is reported that some of the executed are united by their place of work – the North Korean embassy in Great Britain.
