North Korean leader's influential aunt remains in power after uncle Jang's execution
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's influential aunt Kim Kyong Hui remains a part of the regime's inner circle, even after the execution of her husband last week, the second most powerful man in the isolated nation. North Korea late on Saturday named 67-year-old Kim Kyong Hui, daughter of North Korea's founder Kim Il Sung, as one of the funeral committee members for North Korea's ruling party, a prestigious position. Kim's uncle Jang Song Thaek was killed last week just days before the second anniversary of the death of Kim Jong Il, the father of North Korea's current ruler.
