What does the execution of Kim Jong Un's uncle mean?

The North Korean government remains a mystery to most of the outside world. That's why the official announcement of the ouster and execution of Kim Jong Un's uncle is so startling. So is the language used by North Korean state media to describe what happened to Jang Song. They reported "despicable human scum Jang, who was worse than a dog, perpetrated thrice-cursed acts of treachery in betrayal of such profound trust and warmest paternal love shown by the party and the leader for him."
CNN's Paula Hancocks is monitoring developments from Seoul, South Korea.

Inside Typhoon Haiyan

As the sun rises in the Philippines, we are getting our first reports of damage from one of the strongest storms in history. The scale of Typhoon Haiyan's destruction is still unclear.  It cut directly across the nation that's home to nearly 100 million people. Video shows a storm unlike anything most of us will ever see.
