North Korea Kim Jong Un Execute its top Army General (Photo)

A senior North Korean military leader has been executed for "factionalism, misuse of authority and corruption," a South Korean government official with knowledge of North Korean affairs told CNN Thursday.
 The official, who spoke to CNN on condition of anonymity, declined to give further details on how or when General Ri Yong-gil, chief of the North Korean Army's general staff, was executed.
Ri was appointed to the position in 2013, South Korea's Yonhap news agency reported.

One source told Yonhap that Ri was executed last week.
The general is the latest in a line of disgraced officials who have been executed by Kim's regime.
In May of last year, Hyon Yong-chol, the country's defense minister, was publicly executed after the regime accused him of treason. He was reportedly killed with an anti-aircraft gun.
Kim's uncle, Jang Song-thaek, was branded a "traitor for all ages," and executed in 2013.
