Kim Jong-un Appears in Public, Says State Media


North Korea strong man, Kim Jong-un has appeared in public for the first time in 20 days, state media says.

The BBC quoted KCNA news agency as reporting that the North Korean leader cut the ribbon at the opening of a fertiliser factory.

It adds that people at the factory “broke into thunderous cheers of hurrah” when he appeared.

The reported appearance – his first since a Workers’ Party Politburo meeting on 11 April – comes amid global speculation over his health.
