This article seems silly, but it makes a good point. The man in the right of the ninth picture down is Jang Song-thaek, Kim Jong-un's uncle through marriage. The former de facto number two in the country was executed last year after being branded a counter-revolutionary, "worse than a dog", "human scum", and accused of perpetrating "thrice-cursed acts of treachery in betrayal of such profound trust and warmest paternal love shown by the party and the leader for him". According to reports his body was fed to dogs in front of other officials, while a supporter of his was executed by flame-thrower.
