A U.S. civic group has released satellite images of North Korea that appear to show a public execution.
Radio Free Asia reported Thursday that the Washington-based Committee for Human Rights in North Korea published an analysis of photos taken last October from above a military training area near Pyongyang.
Analysts identified six anti-aircraft machineguns lined up across from some blurry objects, with distinct shadows that appear to be people, also lined up side-by-side on a firing range.
Whatever or whoever was in the images was no longer there in another picture taken nine days later.
The committee says the most plausible explanation is that a public execution took place there.
