During a Workers' Party conference Wednesday, April 11, 2012 in Pyongyang, Kim Jong Un was named first secretary of the party, a post that is newly created and that analysts believe is now the top Workers' Party job. Kim Kyong Hui, 66, the younger sister of late leader Kim, was named a secretary of the party's Central Committee while Soviet-trained technocrat Jang, 66, a vice chairman of the powerful National Defense Commission, was named a member of the Political Bureau. v Anonymous/AP
