Kim Jong Un "fed uncle" to dogs

"North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's powerful uncle was stripped naked, thrown into a cage, and eaten alive by a pack of ravenous dogs, according to a newspaper with close ties to China's ruling Communist Party," reports NBC News. "Jang and other aides were completely eaten up." Dear biologists and mafia pigfarmers: is this credible? Sounds to me like a placed story intended to make Kim look in-charge.

Update: probably untrue, reports the Washington Post.
