    0

    SEOUL: North Korean state media confirmed on Thursday that the nation’s hawkish, ageing army chief has been replaced in a reshuffle that observers say sought to tighten leader Kim Jong-Un’s grip over the military. Rumors had circulated in August that Kim Kyok-Sik, 75, had been replaced as chief of the army’s general staff by Ri Yong-Gil.
