North Korea on Friday announced the execution of Kim Jong Un's uncle, calling the leader's former mentor a traitor who tried to overthrow the state.
The announcement came only days after Pyongyang announced through state media that Jang Song Thaek long considered the country's No. 2 power had been removed from all his posts because of allegations of corruption, drug use, gambling, womanizing and leading a "dissolute and depraved life."
The report called him "a traitor to the nation" and "worse than a dog."
Some analysts see the purge as a sign of Kim Jong Un's growing confidence, but there has also been fear in Seoul that the removal of such an important part of the North's government seen by outsiders as the leading supporter of Chinese-style economic reforms could create dangerous instability or lead to a miscalculation or attack on the South.
