Kim Jong-Un is seen looking suspiciously at his uncle in July
From Sky News

What does that glance say to you? A portent of execution by machine gun? Well as we now know - that's how it turned out.

How they are related:

So, his great-uncle rather than his uncle, by marriage on his father's side of the family.

Technically, it may be termed parricide, I think:

- as avunculicide appears to cover the murder of an uncle on the mother's side.

The ancient Greeks would have worked up the Kim dysnasty story into a 3-parter, I think.

Sackers - interesting. Presumably disposing of a blood relative in this way may have been problematic in view North Korea's three generations of punishment policy.
