N. Korean leader doing loyalty check of key officials
SEOUL, Nov. 20 (Yonhap) -- North Korea's new leader Kim Jong-un is conducting a far-reaching loyalty check on the country's key party, government and military officials as he strives to consolidate his power, a Seoul government official said Tuesday.

"After he officially took over power last April, Kim Jong-un has been conducting a task to verify loyalty or (existence of) corruption of key figures," the official at the Unification Ministry said on condition of anonymity.
