South Korean Prime Minister Lee Nak-yon has ordered police, prosecutors and the Korea Communications Commission to punish those who "generate fake news with malicious intent and systemically spread it." Lee was apparently angered by online criticism he received after visiting Vietnam for the funeral of its president, Tran Dai Quang, where he wrote in the visitors' book at the home of Ho Chi Minh that he felt "humble" before the "great" leader.
