North Korean tyrant Kim Jong Un was all smiles as he posed next to a chocolate fountain in Pyongyang’s airport – having just had its creator killed.

The ruthless dictator is said to have executed the airport’s designer weeks before its official opening due to ‘defects’ in its design.

Executions are common in North Korea, with senior officials being killed for offences as minor as watching South Korean soap operas.

Airport design chief Ma Won Chun disappeared late last year, and is thought to have been executed after Kim voiced his dissatisfaction with the airport, according to The Diplomat.

Chun was executed for ‘for corrupt practices and failure to follow orders.’
