A Chinese newspaper reported that North Korea’s Kim Jong-un fed his uncle to a pack of wild and starving dogs — a slow and tortuous execution that the dictator himself watched.
The former top diplomat who oversaw the Obama administration's self-described "pivot to Asia" says recent moves by North Korea's young dictator Kim Jong-un have triggered unease in China, which has long served as North Korea's main ally in the region.
The accused Jang brought together undesirable forces and formed a faction as the boss of a modern day factional group for a long time and thus committed such hideous crime as attempting to overthrow the state by all sorts of intrigues and despicable methods with a wild ambition to grab the supreme power of our party and state.
North Korea on Friday announced the execution of Kim Jong Un's uncle, calling the leader's former mentor a traitor and "worse than a dog."
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un fired his powerful uncle and publicly executed two of his relative's associates, South Korean officials said.
North Korea's power brokers publicly declared Kim Jong Un the country's supreme leader for the first time at a massive public memorial Thursday for his father, cementing the family's hold on power for another generation.
North Korea is showing the uncle and key patron of anointed heir Kim Jong-un wearing a military uniform with a general's insignia — a strong sign he'll play a crucial role in helping the young man take over power and uphold the "military-first" policy initiated by his late father, Kim Jong-il.
North Korea's young and inexperienced next leader will lean on a seasoned inner circle headed by his aunt and uncle to guide him through the transition to supreme ruler.
There is no sure path for the transition of power in nuclear-armed North Korea, even as its citizens mourn the death of longtime dictator Kim Jong-il and praise the rise of his hand-picked successor, Kim Jong-un, regional analysts say.
Kim Jong-il, North Korea's ailing leader, has laid the groundwork for a transition of power to his youngest son, but it remains to be seen if the reclusive, nuclear-armed regime will soften its combative stance toward the international community.
He said the band travelled to China during Jang's visit there in August 2012.
"As our Party detected and purged the anti-Party, counterrevolutionary factionalists at an opportune time and with a correct decision, the Party and revolutionary ranks were further consolidated and our single-hearted unity was solidified to the maximum," he said.
