North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's uncle was stripped naked and thrown into a cage to be executed by dogs.
Unlike previous executions of political prisoners, which were carried out by firing squads with machine guns, Jang was thrown into a cage, along with his five closest aides.
According to the Straits Times, Jang was starved for three days, and then dogs were allowed to prey on them until they were completely eaten up.
This is called 'quan jue', or execution by dogs.
The report said the entire process lasted for an hour, with Kim Jong Un supervising it along with 300 senior officials, the report added.
