Crying Uncle

An effigy of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is set on fire during an anti-North Korean rally on the second anniversary of the death of former leader Kim Jong Il in central Seoul December 17, 2013. North Korea's political and military elite publicly pledged their loyalty to leader Kim Jong Un on Tuesday, less than a week after he ordered the execution of a powerful family ally in a rare public purge.
