North Korea is already pretty much insane, so you really shouldn’t be surprised to find out that using a cell phone will brand you a war criminal.
In the wake of Kim Jong-Il’s death, it seems that those found using cell phones or attempting to cross the border during the mandatory 100-day mourning period will be “punished accordingly.”
After the death of Jong-Il, thousands of people have attempted to flee in the wake of dwindling food reserves and abject poverty.
Despite approximately 1 million residents owning cell phones, the flow of information in and out of the secretive country has been stifled.
It’s up to Kim Jong-Il’s pudgy son, Kim Jong-un, to determine whether or not cell phones will be accessible after the 100-day mourning period ends.
Maybe he’ll just eat them all.
