North Korea's military and political elite lined up in formation to swear fealty to its leader Kim Jong-un today as observers studied the position of top aides to see who survived the recent purge of Kim's uncle.

Kim's paternal aunt Kim Kyong-hui was not present at any of the events after her husband Jang Song-thaek, known to have been North Korea's second most powerful man, was suddenly purged and executed last week.

The aunt was reportedly in favor of her husband's ouster from the government. Jang has been charged of alleged drug abuse, womanizing, and treason by attempting to create his own powerbase within the regime.

"With Jang now out of the picture, North Korea is ready and set to go to start assembling people behind Kim Jong-un's sole and only leadership," said Park Chang-kwon, senior research fellow at Korea Institute for Defense Analyses in Seoul.


Didn't she set up the uncle for the NK death panel?

Stalin routinely did this. An good example of this is Nikolai Yezhov. He was head of the NKVD.Yezhov himself fell out of Stalin's favour and on April 10, 1939, he was arrested and on February 4, 1940, he was executed. Stalin airbrushed him out of a pucture taken in 1936.
