(ANSA) - Rome, July 16 - The chief of North Korea's military
has been dismissed due to "sickness", according to the country's
official news agency Monday.
Ri Yong-Ho's surprise departure has triggered rumours of a
possible purge within the military of the reclusive Communist
country.
Ri is believed to have been close to President Kim Jong Un
and a supporter during the young leader's transition to power
after the death of his father Kim Jong Il last December.
North Korean experts say that Ri's dismissal could indicate
an internal power struggle as Kim consolidates his grip on the
military.
