Jang Sung-taek’s removal is the biggest upheaval in North Korea’s leadership since Kim Jong-un succeeded his father, analysts say.

Two of his close aides have been executed for corruption, according to earlier South Korean reports.

KCNA said the decision had come after a meeting of the politburo of the ruling Workers’ Party.
