North Korea's propaganda website Uriminzokkiri on Tuesday published a crude clip in which aimed shots blow up President Park Geun-hye and Cheong Wa Dae.
The three-minute clip first shows photos of Park and Cheong Wa Dae placed in crosshairs. Then a subtitle pops up, "The traitorous Park Geun-hye clique, which is calling for its own self-destruction, is in here."
Shortly afterwards, an image shows of Park and Cheong Wa Dae being shattered into pieces.
The clip also shows an image of the White House being blown up.
North Korean propaganda traditionally mixes the terrifying and the ludicrous.
Prof. Nam Sung-wook of Korea University speculated that the clip is a response to Park mentioning of the possibility of regime collapse amid joint South Korea-U.S. military drills practicing "decapitation raids" on the North.
