SEOUL, Dec. 10 (Yonhap) -- The ousted uncle of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un may be sent to a concentration camp for his alleged factional acts, a South Korean official said Tuesday.

Jang Song-thaek, who had long been viewed as the North's No. 2 man and Kim's regent, was dismissed from all posts and expelled from the ruling Workers' Party at a key party meeting presided by Kim on Sunday, according to North Korea's state media.
