North Korea leader Kim Jong-un married to Ri Sol-ju
July 26 , 2012
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.
