North Korea has replaced the No. 2 figure at its defense ministry, according to the country's official media, marking the second change in the ministry's top leadership to be revealed in recent days.
The Korean Central News Agency, monitored in Beijing, carried a report saying North Korean leader Kim Jong Un visited an army factory accompanied by officials including Jon Chang Bok, whom KCNA identified as "first vice minister of the People's Armed Forces."
That position was previously held by Hyon Chol Hae.
