North Korean Leader Sacks Uncle

"South Korea's spy agency believes that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's powerful uncle may have been dismissed from his posts last month and that two of his aides were executed," the AP reports.

Jang Song Thaek "has reportedly been purged in the past, only to return to power. He has held a slew of top posts and is married to Kim Jong Un's aunt, Kim Kyong Hui, the younger sister of late leader Kim Jong Il."
