Jong-un mentor Ri Yong-ho sacked by former protégé

Following the path of his late father, Kim Jong-un seems to know all too well how to do a little purging. Who else to start with than his former mentor.

Military chief Ri Yong-ho, 69, was today replaced by low-profile field commander, Hyon Yong-Chol, who is believed to be in his early 60s. This latest move by Jong-un should send a signal to anyone who was still questioning who was the real boss in the DPRK. The student has grown up and turned against his former protectors. What a drama.
