North Korea erases online archives 

Thousands of references to Kim Jong-un‘s uncle removed from online media reports since last week’s execution

North Korea‘s state media have erased almost their entire online archives since the execution of Kim Jong-un’s uncle Jang Song-thaek

The removal of tens of thousands of articles is the largest deletion ever carried out by the official KCNA news agency and the Rodong Sinmun newspaper.

Several reports mentioning Jang had already been edited to remove references to him and other aides, and footage had been cut so that it no longer included him. But subsequently all articles from before October 2013 appeared to been removed from KCNA’s North Korea-hosted site. It is unclear whether they will be reposted at some point or have disappeared for good.
