North Korea's Kim Jong-un walks without stick
November 5 , 2014
Photos of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un showing him walking without a stick have been published in the state-controlled media reports.
Kim’s disappearance from the public for about six weeks had fueled speculation about his health in the South Korean and western media. He finally attended an event in October where he used a walking stick.
According to South Korea’s intelligence agencies, he underwent an operation to remove a cyst in the ankle.
