Default Kim Jong Un killed uncle, half-brother over 'China coup plot,' report says

Quote:
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un reportedly had his uncle executed and his half-brother killed in a daring airport assassination earlier this year after learning about a Chinese-backed plan to have him ousted, a Japanese magazine claimed.

Kim took power in 2011 after his father, Kim Jong Il, died. In six years, the leader purged senior officials and relatives allegedly plotting to overthrow him and his regime.

Kim's uncle, Jang Song Thaek, was executed in 2013 when he was accused of being a "traitor" and committing a series of "hideous crimes." His exiled half-brother, Kim Jong Nam, died this year when two women smeared his face with the banned VX nerve agent in Kuala Lumpar airport in Malaysia. Two women are being charged in his death, although they claim they were duped into thinking they were playing a harmless prank for a hidden-camera TV show.

North Korea never acknowledged the half-brother's death, but a report by the Japanese magazine Nikkei Asian Review claimed the leader had both relatives killed because of a coup concocted a year after he came to power, Sky News reported.

The magazine cited three sources who said Jang met with then-Chinese President Hu Jintao in August 2012 and "proposed a plot to oust Kim Jong Un and replace him with his elder half-brother," with China's support.

Hu reportedly didn't give Jang a clear answer, and Zhou Yongkang, Kim's ally in the Chinese government, informed the North Korean leader about the plot. Kim then "flew into a rage" around the time when Jang was executed, whom he branded "worse than a dog" and a "despicable human scum."

thats fukked up how china snitched him out to NKorea. goes to show where their loyalties lie.

and considering Ukraine outed NKorea spies that never stole missile designs i'm betting it was Russia that gave them the missile designs to advance their weapons program. they tried to make it out like NKorea got it from Ukraine but Ukraine just disproved that accusation with their sting tape.

and i'm completely behind Tillerson's fervent support for Ukraine now
