South Korean President Park Guen-hye delivers a speech from a podium
South Korean President Park Guen-hye delivers a speech during a ceremony of the 60th anniversary of the armistice agreement and UN forces' participation in the Korean War, at the War Memorial of Korea in Seoul Saturday, July 27, 2013. In South Korea, the anniversary was marked with a speech by President Park, an exhibit on the war's history and a planned anti-North Korea rally. Park vowed in prepared remarks not to tolerate provocations from North Korea, but she also said Seoul would work on building trust with the North.

North Korea threatened to kill former South Korean President Park Geun-Hye


North Korea threatened to impose the "death penalty" on former South Korean president Park Geun-Hye on Wednesday over an alleged plan to assassinate Kim Jong Un, Yahoo News reported.

South Korea's official Korean Central News Agency said that Seoul's intelligence services had a plan to eliminate Kim that Park had "pushed forward."

"We declare at home and abroad that we will impose death penalty on traitor Park Geun-Hye," Pyongyang's security ministry and prosecutors said in a statement to KCNA.

They "can never make any appeal even though they meet miserable dog's death any time, at any place and by whatever methods from this moment," the statement continued.

Lee Byung-Ho, former director of South Korea's National Intelligence Service, was also threatened, and North Korea demanded that both Lee and Park be handed over since "they committed hideous state-sponsored terrorism against the supreme leadership."

Park was recently impeached and is on trial for charges of bribery and abuse of power. The current South Korean president, Moon Jae-In, is on his way to Washington right now for a summit meeting with President Trump.

Last month, Pyongyang's ministry of state security declared it had blocked the U.S. and South Korea from attempting to kill Kim using biochemical weapons, Yahoo News reported.
