Aug. 25 (UPI) -- North Korea may have hired more than 10 former KGB agents as military advisers as concerns grew that leader Kim Jong Un could become the target of an assassination, according to a Japanese newspaper.
The Asahi Shimbun reported Friday concerns about Kim's safety prompted the regime to bring in Russian spies, many of who had been active in the former Soviet Union.
"In February, North Korea invited to Pyongyang about 10 former staff of the KGB's anti-terrorism unit with experience in suppression strategy, to Pyongyang, and entrusted them to carry out the training of [North Korea] escort commanders," a North Korean source on the matter told the Asahi.
North Korea's escort command has an exclusive responsibility to protect Kim, who, according to state media, has been targeted for a U.S. and South Korean decapitation operation.

A country that is currently whining about nazis that used their scientists to build something another country built on their own without the help of nazis.
Ain't that a kick in the rear.
