North Korea's Kim Jung Un Appears to be more of an animal than previously thought (Auto-on video)

More than 100 members of the family of the executed uncle of Kim Jong-Un have been killed or arrested, a report claims. 
A news website for North Korean defectors, Daily NK, reported that members of Jang Song-Thaek's family were rounded up by the dozen following his arrest and subsequent death in December. 
Jang Song-Thaek's children, brothers and grandchildren have been condemned to death, according to media reports in South Korea.
Although South Korean news agencies have published unconfirmed information from North Korea in the past, the report from Daily NK back up the claims of a 'purge' of Jang's family. 
Jang, 67, was executed last month, after being accused of plotting to overthrow the communist regime. 
The president of South Korea, Park Geun-Hye, has previously spoken of her fear of purges among the powerful in the North.
'North Korea is now engaged in a reign of terror while carrying out a massive purge to consolidate the power of Kim Jong-Un,' she told a cabinet meeting. 
Sources told the Yonhap News Agency it is unclear exactly when the family members were killed, but they are believed to have been put to death after Jang's execution on December 12.
'Some relatives were shot to death by pistol in front of other people if they resisted while being dragged out of their apartment homes,' a source told Yonhap. 
Among those allegedly executed were Jang's sister Jang Kye-Sun, her husband and Ambassador to Cuba Jon Yong-Jin and Jang's nephew and Ambassador to Malaysia Jang Yong-Chol, as well as his two sons. 
The children and grandchildren of Jang's two brothers are also said to have been killed. 
One source told the news agency, which is publicly funded and has close links to the South Korean government: 'All relatives of Jang have been put to death, including even children.'
