Executions and imprisonments have been stepped up as Kim attempted to regain grip of his fragile rule in Pyongyang.

South Korean spies revealed surveillance has also been stepped up on the dictator’s allies.

Defectors have previously revealed Kim remains fearful of having his rule overthrown – both by the US and enemies inside North Korea.

Officials from Seoul’s top spooks the National Assembly Intelligence Committee said the leader is trying to create a “climate of fear”.

It has emerged as US President Donald Trump visits South Korea today with North Korea at the top of the agenda.

Spooks revealed Kim Jong-un executed one of his generals in charge of anti-aircraft defences in Pyongyang.

Propaganda chiefs in charge of the Rodong Sinmun daily newspaper has also been sent to the gulag.

They are due to “re-educated” after not celebrating a missile launch properly on the front page.

Kim began his rule with a series of purges, killing his uncle Jan Song-taek with help of his brother Kim Jong-chol.

The ruler appears to be closing ranks this year as he promoted his sister and ex-girlfirend to top jobs in the party.

Prof. Nam Sung-wook of Korea University said, “Kim has resumed the purges to tighten controls amid international sanctions and strengthen unity.”
