North Korea's new leader Kim Jong-un has been given two posts previously occupied by his late father.

State media said the younger Kim had been named chairman of the party's Central Military Commission and a standing member of the Politburo.

The announcement came after North Korea held a rare party conference widely expected to see more power formally transferred to Kim Jong-un.

The news of Kim Jong-un's new titles came after the ruling Korean Workers' Party held a conference yesterday.
