"Extensive executions have been carried out for relatives of Jang Song-thaek," one source told the agency.
"All relatives of Jang have been put to death, including even children." "Some relatives were shot to death by pistol in front of other people if they resisted while being dragged out of their apartment homes," a source told Yonhap.
However, some relatives by marriage, including the former Malaysian ambassador's wife, were spared and sent to remote villages along with their maiden families, according to sources.thestar.com.my
The killings were reported to have taken place after Jang's own execution on December 12 and "mean that no traces of him should be left", a source told Yonhap.telegraph.co.uk
According to a report in pro-China paper Wen Wei Po, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un‘s uncle was stripped naked, locked in a cage and then eaten alive by a pack of 120 hungry dogs

Jang Song Thaek, long considered KJU’s second-in-command, was executed last month after his crazy nephew became suspicious that he was trying to undermine his authority.
How Jang was put to death, however, was not specified when the news first broke on December 12.elitedaily.com
Hong Kong-based newspaper Wen Wei Po has reported that Jang, along with his five closest aides, were killed by 120 hounds that had not eaten in five days.yahoo.com
Kim, his brother Kim Jong-Chol and 300 other officials oversaw the entire process, which took about one hour. The newspaper is quoted as saying that Jang and the aides were “completely eaten up.”npr.org
First, Kim Jong Un ordered the execution his uncle Jang. Now he is erasing uncle Jang from photographs.
After having his uncle — and longtime regime insider — Jang Song Thaek executed earlier this month, Kim Jong Un’s totalitarian state has set about purging any historical trace of the “traitor” Jang.theguardian.com
In the 21st century, Stalinist airbrushing may be one of the more futile, anachronistic measures in a despot’s toolkit. But Kim’s North Korea is a land apart and thousands of government documents and photographs have been removed from the Internet, presumably so that references to Jang can be erased.time.com
On Saturday, N Korea's state TV repeated a documentary on Kim Jong Un's military inspection trips. Although uncle Jang appeared throughout the version that aired on Oct. 28, images of him had vanished from the new version.
In one scene in the original version, uncle Jang can be seen walking behind Kim Jong Un as the leader speaks with a soldier. But Jang cannot be seen in Saturday's version, which has the same title and narration.
Elsewhere in the older version, he is seen clapping his hands from a distance as a uniformed officer speaks to Kim. But the new version only shows what appear to be parts of Jang's right arm, chest and abdomen.
The uncle of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un has been dragged from a military court and executed for being a 'traitor
Jang Song Thaek, 67, who had been considered the second most powerful official in the country, and a mentor to his nephew, was killed immediately after a military trial.
It is believed he was executed in the customary North Korean way by firing squad.

Jang Song-thaek, previously one of the country's most powerful men, was accused of everything from plotting to overthrow the state to instigating disastrous currency reforms and dishing out pornography in the report from official news agency KCNA.mashable.com

Earlier this week he was expelled from the Workers’ Party of Korea and stripped of all his posts
North Korea announced earlier this week that Jang, thought to be in his late 60s, had been stripped of all posts and expelled from the Workers' party for offences including factionalism, corruption and dissolute behaviour.indiatimes.com
But many had thought his marriage to the youthful leader's aunt – the sister of late leader Kim Jong-il – was likely to save his life.theguardian.com
The state-controlled Korean Central News Agency released a 2,700-word statement in English today.
'From long ago, Jang had a dirty political ambition,' the statement said. 'He dared not raise his head when Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il were alive.
'He began revealing his true colors, thinking that it was just the time for him to realize his wild ambition in the period of historic turn when the generation of the revolution was replaced.'koreatimes.co.kr
The statement added: 'Every sentence of the decision served as sledge-hammer blow brought down by our angry service personnel and people on the head of Jang, an anti-party, counter-revolutionary factional element and despicable political careerist and trickster.
'The accused is a traitor to the nation for all ages who perpetrated anti-party, counter-revolutionary factional acts in a bid to overthrow the leadership of our party and state and the socialist system.
Other offences cited in the lengthy, bombastic and at times downright bizarre report from KCNA included halfhearted "applause" as Kim rose to power
Along with the halfhearted applause as Kim rose to power, other offence was Jang's "reckless" instruction to security forces to erect a granite block with Kim's signature in a shaded corner rather than in front of their headquarters.theguardian.com
Brian Myers, an expert on ideology at Dongseo University in Busan, noted that the denigration of Jang held potential perils for the leadership. It raised questions about his ability to cause so much damage for so long and sat uneasily with North Korea's use of collective punishment.time.com
