North Korea celebrates deaths of soldiers building greenhouses for Kim Jong Un

State media reveals two workers died during construction on leader’s pet project, holding up their sacrifice as example

At least two North Korean soldiers died while working and living at a large-scale greenhouse farm construction site last year, state media revealed on Sunday, painting the deaths as a positive example of citizens sacrificing themselves to carry out leader Kim Jong Un’s orders.

State media does not usually report on accidents or deaths that, like in any country, occur on a daily basis but sometimes reveals incidents later with a patriotic spin.
