Rodong Sinmun Discloses Crimes Committed by Japanese Imperialists
Pyongyang, October 9 (KCNA) -- Rodong Sinmun Monday in an article cites facts to disclose that the Japanese imperialists' bloody history of aggression on Korea records the murder of Empress Myongsong called Ulmi Incident.

The article says:

At dawn of October 8, 1895, a group of murderers, including the Japanese army, police, rogues and training squads of pro-Japanese armed forces, rushed to the Kyongbok Palace.

The murderers had already learned the appearance of Empress Myongsong through her portrait, but they could not easily find her as many of the court ladies screamed and ran away in a crowd, so they stabbed the ladies to death at random.

They found a woman still breathing among the fallen ladies and ascertained that she was the Empress. They rolled her body in quilt and put her on a pile of firewood they had already prepared in a pine grove and burned her to death.

The Japanese imperialists brutally killed even the Empress of a country in a cruel way. It was a hideous crime against humanity unprecedented in the world.

The Japanese imperialists, who killed Empress Myongsong, had got more undisguised in their moves to subjugate Korea and finally occupied it by force of arms, the article notes, adding:

Tremendous is the human and material loss and mental damage the Japanese imperialists inflicted upon the Korean people during the colonial rule of 40-odd years.

The wounds of grudge in the hearts of the Korean people will never heal no matter how much water may flow under the bridge.

However, Japan is making shameless sophism that its colonial rule over Korea was "legally effective" while refusing to admit and make an apology and reparation for its hideous crimes.

The Korean people will surely and thoroughly settle accounts with the crimes against humanity committed by the Japanese imperialists during their colonial rule.
