Seoul: North Korean leader Kim Jong-un was `very drunk` when he ordered the execution of his uncle Jang Song-thaek`s aides.

The orders for their execution were reportedly given after the Ri Ryong-ha and Jang Su-gil questioned an order from the leader to hand over a profitable business to military, according to a Japanese newspaper.
The North Korean leader was reportedly upset and drinking at the time of ordering their execution.

The young leader executed eight other aides of his uncle before ordering the execution of his uncle weeks later.
The newspaper stated that South Korean government was alarmed that jang will be executed.

Song-Thaek was executed on December 12 after being purged from power for being a traitor and denounced by the leader as being "worse than a dog".
