N. Korea calls Kerry ‘wild dog with hideous lantern jaw’

PanARMENIAN.Net - In its latest personal attack on a prominent official, North Korea has called U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry a wild dog with a "hideous lantern jaw," the Associated Press reports.

The slur from the National Defense Commission, the North's top governing body, is the latest in a slew of crude insults against U.S. and South Korean leaders. The North's state media has called President Barack Obama a monkey and South Korean President Park Geun-hye a prostitute.

An unidentified commission official describes Kerry as a "wolf donning the mask of sheep" who plays a role in U.S. plans to invade North Korea.

He criticized Kerry's comments on North Korea's human rights record and weapons programs.

South Korean activists frequent use images depicting North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as a pig in anti-Pyongyang rallies.
