North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un has ordered an increase in security at such sites as “hostile elements” within the hermit state deface the symbols.

Statues and murals depicting the three Kim leaders have been targeted by citizens furious at the imbalance in the country.

Kim has increased the number of monuments to his dynasty during his reign in an attempt to piggy-back on the popularity of previous leaders.

But with famine and starvation frequently sweeping the country, there is a growing anger at Kim and his one-party government.

In particular, citizens are frustrated at the increased focus on nuclear weapons and war when they and their families are going hungry.

One citizen told a South Korea-based news agency security lighting was now being used to stop anyone attacking the statues or other monuments.

He said: “Agencies have constantly been saying ‘Use lights to illuminate statues and paintings of the three generals of the Mount Paekyu bloodline and thoroughly care for them to ensure that hostile elements cannot damage them’.”

And a Japan-based expert confirmed disgruntled North Koreans were targeting the statues as symbols of the state’s problems.

Professor Toshimitsu Shigemura of Waseda University told the Telegraph: “There have been reports of incidents targeting these statues and monuments to the Kim family, particularly in the more remote areas of the country.
