North Koreas deputy delegate to UNESCO Hong Yong was spotted yesterday at the Beijing Airport prior to boarding an Air Koryo flight bound for Pyongyang.

Hong is the latest in a series of high-level officials recalled home by the North following the purge and execution of Jang Song Taek. 

Pak Kwang Chol, North Koreas ambassador to Sweden, was seen returning home on the 27th, and North Koreas ambassador to Malaysia Jang Yong Chol was witnessed in transit at Chinas Shenyang Airport on the 5th.  Jang is the nephew of Jang Song Taek. 

The husband of Jangs elder sister, North Koreas ambassador to Cuba Jon Yong Jin, was summoned home earlier in the month.  

This latest sighting comes after a statement made yesterday by South Koreas Minister of Unification Ryoo Kihl Jae that, We are picking up signs that persons with close connections to Jang Song Taek are being recalled and purged.
