North Korea leader Kim Jong-un married to Ri Sol-ju

  • North Korean state media have confirmed that the country's leader Kim Jong-un is married.

    Reports referred to him attending the opening of an amusement park with his wife, "Comrade Ri Sol-ju".

    In recent weeks, speculation has been mounting over Kim's private life after an unidentified woman was pictured attending events with him.

    Little is known about the first lady. There is a North Korean singer who goes by the same name but it has not been confirmed whether she is Kim's wife.

    Kim Jong-un took over as leader following the death of his father Kim Jong-il in December last year.
