Photographs of Kim Jong Un appear in North Korean media

  • Photographs of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un have been published in the country’s state media in an attempt to quell speculation about his absence from public appearances for over a month.

    According to the state news agency, Kim visited a new residential district and a scientific institute. He is seen walking with a cane, and does not appear to be in discomfort, in the undated photographs.

    His disappearance from the public had prompted several theories and rumors in the South Korean and western media.
