North Korean military chief Ri Yong-ho has been removed from all official posts, according to state media.

As well as being head of the army, he was vice-chairman of the powerful Central Military Commission and held top posts in the ruling Workers' Party.

In a short statement, the party said Ri had been removed from his posts "because of illness".

However analysts say there is widespread scepticism about that explanation.
