The state of North Korea

Jang Song Taek, who held numerous posts in the North Korean regime since the 1970s, was considered the country's second-most powerful man.

Then, the most powerful man, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, had him executed.

Jang's death sent ripples through the isolated nation not just because of his influential position, but because he was the uncle of Kim Jong Un.

In the two years preceding his death, Jang held one of the most powerful posts - regent to the young North Korean leader. He was instrumental in the nation's transition from former leader Kim Jong Il to his son and heir, Kim Jong Un.

The secretive nature of the North Korean regime makes it a challenge to deduce why Jang fell out of favor, though one expert sums it up this way: Kim Jong Un outgrew his guardian and took him out.

Becky talks to politician David Alton about the message Kim Jong Un is sending with the execution of his uncle.

Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra dissolved the nation's parliament Monday and called for new elections. But the move did little to appease anti-government protesters who remained on the streets by the thousands.

Between 100,000 and 150,000 demonstrators rallied in Bangkok, with protest leaders saying their goal Monday is to storm Shinawatra's office, known as Government House.

The country will hold new elections by February 2, but embattled Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra may not be her party's choice to run

Family of rape victim shares their story

The colorful, busy streets of New Delhi, India's capital are a mixture of old and new. Some people have modern attitudes, while others remain rooted in ancient values.

A 23-year-old female medical student from Ballia, in India's Uttar Pradesh State, had set out to change that. She had plans to give free medical care to the needy, to provide for her family, and to change those perceptions that a woman can't dream big in a traditionally male-dominated society.

She was the bridge between India, old and new.

But what happened to her on December 16, 2012 would be the country's tipping point - a rape that shook the nation.

Her parents share the story of the attack on their daughter one year on and the public outrage that followed.
