North Korea is one example where cannibalism can be found. As you may know, North Korea can barely feed it's population and there are severe food

situations when push comes to shove people will eat each other to stay alive. North Korea is not the only place where this happens. Famine is often
leads to long pork being on the menu.
Terapin I heard similar stories to the one you mention above, not only in Northe Korea but China as well. I heard it only through idle chatter so
simply assumed it was one of these urban legends....do you have any sources?
More disturbingly recently I remember reading, (sorry trying to find the article but can't) an article about prostitution in Thailand. It focused on
the usual subjects associated with sex tourism then went in to a detailed account of how the reporter went about buying a girl so he could kill her.
He made no effort to hide the fact from the pimp he was going to kill her and I think the said 'owner' offered to dispose of the girl and then have
her served back up to the client
The sale went through and a girl arrived for him seemingly aware she was about to be killed but fortunately
for her she was taken out of the country rather hastily by the reporter who also made a quick exit, (still trying to find story).
I know that isnt quite on topic but just goes to show what some people will do for a few $.
