North Korea has executed its army chief of staff Ri Yong-gil, foreign media reports.

Senior officials in North Korea have previously been absent from view for long periods only to reappear.

However, Gen Ri would be the latest of several high-ranking officials to be purged under leader Kim Jong-un.

According to reports, the Gen Ri had been executed earlier this month for corruption and "factional conspiracy".

Last week, a meeting of the Central Committee of the ruling Workers' Party attended by Mr Kim discussed how to deal with corruption.
