North Korean leader Kim Jong Un had his uncle stripped naked, thrown into a cage, and eaten alive by a pack of 120 ravenous hounds, according to a Chinese report.

Jang Song Thaek, who was seen as Kim's second in command, was executed last month after being found guilty of attempting to overthrow the government.

The detailed account of the brutal execution was published in Wen Wei Po, a Hong Kong-based  mouthpiece of China's ruling communist party.

The report said that although most executions are carried out by firing squads with machine guns, Jang was thrown into a cage naked with five close associates.

The dogs, which had been starved for three days, were then set loose and attacked the six of them for an hour until they had been completely eaten. Called "quan jue" or execution by dogs, the event was said to be supervised by Kim and 300 leading officials.

The fact that Beijing approved the report of the horrifying execution reveals that relations between China and North Korea have reached an all-time low, says the Singapore-based Straits Times.

The Global Times, which is associated with the People's Daily, a Chinese Communist Party newspaper, also ran an editorial, saying that the majority of Chinese loathed Kim while also declaring that Beijing should no longer coddle Kim's backward political system.

The treason charges against Jang, who had close ties with China, included accusations of him selling coal and natural resources like gold to its neighbor on the cheap.

However, The Washington Post said Friday that the report may not be true, claiming Wen Wei Po, although linked to the communist party, is more like Hong Kong's version of the National Enquirer.
