North Korea Airbrushes Kim's Executed Uncle Out of History

The North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's disgraced mentor, Jang Song Thaek, has been deleted from all official photos and videos after his purge and execution on Dec. 12, 2013. In its broadcast on Dec. 7, the state-run Chosun Central TV airbrushed out the images of Jang, who had been seen near Kim in a previous broadcast on Oct. 28. Several instances here show Pyongyang's airbrush at work. Photo: Yonhap
