>> Reports of a double execution in North Korea, under special orders from Kim Jong-un. A South Korean newspaper on Tuesday saying, two top officials have been killed by anti-aircraft gun. One of them apparently for falling asleep during a meeting with the supreme leader. Reuters can't independently verify the report, but if it is true, it could be seen as Kim laying down the law after a string of high profile defections by senior Pyongyang officials.
