The once-powerful uncle of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has been executed after being purged for corruption.

Chang Song-thaek was dramatically removed from a Communist Party session by armed guards earlier this week.

It was the biggest disruption since Kim succeeded his father two years ago.

Chang had admitted at a military trial yesterday to attempting to overthrow the state, and was executed immediately.
