North Korea’s nuclear ambitions have turned the area surrounding into a nuclear wasteland — and the radiation fallout is causing unimaginable suffering in the country.
Recent testings have turned the land near Punggye-ri, near Kilju into a highly contaminated area with dead trees and dried-up, irratiated underground wells.
As if these reports were not disturbing enough, witness accounts from 21 defectors who used to live in the affected territory have reported that the radiation is killing babies.

Local babies are being subjected to radiation while in their mother’s wombs and are being born deformed. Yes, poor little innocent babies!
According to defectors, residents in the surrounding area were left by Kim Jong Un’s regime to fend for themselves. The authorities did not give a prior warning, nor did they provide any radiation protections after.
Among these horrifying reports, one defector recalled that the only people who were evacuated prior to nuclear testings were the residents that were considered to be important.
“During the first nuclear test [October 2006] and second one [May 2009], only family members of soldiers were evacuated to underground shafts. Ordinary people were completely unaware of the tests,” the defector recalled.
The defector added, “I personally saw corpses floating down the river with their limbs severed,” adding that local residents were also ordered to dig “deep holes for those tests.”
Humans are not the only form of life that suffers when exposed to radioactivity, of course.
Regional delicacy, pine mushrooms, stopped growing completely after the first nuke test in 2006.
Sources have reported that residents from Kilju, have been banned from traveling to the capital for medical appointments.

Residents from Kilju that are caught boarding trains to leave the area with samples of soil, water or vegetation are sent to prison camps to contain the problem.
North Korea has slammed any negative reports against their nuke test site, claiming that they are all wrong.
After a Japanese television station claimed that at least 200 people died when tunnels collapsed underground, North Korean officials dismissed it as “misinformation”.
Lingering radiation from North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un’s sixth nuclear test has been called a “phantom disease” that causes unexplained fatigue, headaches and weight loss.
The radiation caused from the nuke testings have reportedly sparked a high mortality rate and nervous system disorders, common side effects from radiation exposure.
Truly horrifying stuff.
