SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korean state television showed Jang Song Thaek, the ousted uncle of leader Kim Jong Un, being forcibly removed by uniformed personnel from a meeting of the ruling Workers' Party that occurred on Sunday. North Korea's KRT ran a slideshow of photographs from the meeting. One of the frames showed Jang being taken away by what appeared to be uniformed guards. North Korean state news agency KCNA said Jang, the second most powerful man in the country, had been dismissed for what it described as a slew of criminal acts. (Reporting by Ju-min Park; Editing by)
