Kim Jong-un is believed to be carrying out a massive purge following the failed U.S.-North Korea summit in Vietnam earlier this year.

Kim Hyok Chol, a special envoy to the U.S., was executed in March, South Korean newspaper Chosun Ilbo.
Four other foreign ministry officials who carried out working-level negotiations for the summit, were also executed.

They were among those who were held responsible for the summit's collapse.
Kim Hyok Chol had been a negotiations counterpart to U.S. special representative for North Korea Stephen Biegun before the summit.
A senior official who had been Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's counterpart in the run-up to the summit in Hanoi is said to have been subjected to forced labor and ideological education.

That official, Kim Yong Chol, was forced to work in Jagang Province after his dismissal.
Kim Song Hye, who carried out working-level negotiations with Kim Hyok Chol, was reportedly sent to a political prison camp.
Shin Hye Yong, the interpreter for Kim Jong Un at the Hanoi meeting, is also said to have been detained in a political prison camp for undermining the authority of the North Korean leader by making a critical interpretation mistake, Chosun reported.
Kim Yo Jong, Kim Jong Un's sister who aided him in Hanoi, is also said to be lying low, the paper reported.
