North Korea military head removed


North Korea’s top military chief Ri Yong-ho has been removed from his job, state media say, seven months after Kim Jong-un came to power.

Mr Ri was allegedly relieved of his post, apparently due to illness.

Ri Yong-Ho was regarded as one of the key figures who helped to support the country’s new leader Kim Jong-Un on the death of his father, as Lucy Williamson reports from Seoul.
