New Delhi: North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has reportedly put to death a number of surviving relatives of his executed uncle Jang Song-thaek, including children.

Quoting multiple sources, a report from South Korean news agency Yonhap says the relatives include North Korea's ambassadors to Cuba and Malaysia, who were both related to Kim's uncle by marriage.

Jang, once a powerful mentor to Kim, was dragged out of a party meeting, tried and executed last month on charges of attempting to overthrow the communist regime.

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.
