Kim Jong-un has appeared in public for the first time in 20 days, North Korean state media says, according to BBC. KCNA news agency reports that the North Korean leader cut the ribbon at the opening of a fertilizer factory.
The reported appearance – his first since a state media appearance on 12 April – comes amid global speculation over his health. The latest reports from state media could not be independently confirmed and no pictures were provided.
Speculation began when Mr Kim missed the birth anniversary celebrations of state founder Kim Il Sung on April 15. South Korea said reports that Kim was seriously ill were untrue. More at BBC.
