North Korea's Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un has given his sister more power by promoting her to the nation's top decision-making body.

Kim Yo-jong, the youngest daughter of late leader Kim Jong-il, will be replacing her aunt as a member of the Workers Party's Politburo.

30-years-old Kim was referred to as a senior party official three years ago.

The Kim family has ruled North Korea since the country was established following the Second World War in 1948.

Kim Yo-jong, who has frequently appeared alongside her brother in public and is thought to have been responsible for his public image, was already influential as vice-director of the propaganda and agitation department.

She is blacklisted by the US over alleged links to human rights abuses in North Korea.

Her promotion was announced by Kim Jong-un at a party meeting on Saturday (07) as part of a reshuffle involving dozens of other top officials.
