N. Korean Leader's Uncle Eaten Alive by Dogs: Report

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's powerful uncle was stripped naked, thrown into a cage, and eaten alive by a pack of ravenous dogs, according to Hong Kong-based newspaper Wen Wei Po. The newspaper, which has acted as a mouthpiece for China's Communist Party, reported that Jang Song Thaek and his five closest aides were killed by 120 hunting hounds which had been starved for five days. The report could not be independently confirmed by NBC News. The official North Korean account on Dec. 12 did not specify how Jang was put to death. Jang was executed last month after being found guilty of "attempting to overthrow the state." He was believed to have been a key connection between North Korea and its ally China.
