After weeks of speculation, North Korea ’s Kim appeared again

State media reported on Saturday (May 2) that North Korea ’s Kim Jong-un made his first public appearance in nearly three weeks, after strong speculation that the leader of the nuclear weapon’s country was seriously ill or might die.

North Korea reported that Kim participated in the opening ceremony of the fertilizer plant and released photos saying that Kim Jong Il cut the ribbon at a ceremony held in Suncheon City, north of Pyongyang, although the appearance could not be confirmed.

Rumors about Kim’s health have been circulating since Kim was clearly absent during the celebration of his grandfather, North Korea’s founder’s birthday celebration on April 15.

His absence triggered a series of heated rumors and unconfirmed reports about his condition, while the United States and South Korea insisted that they had no information to believe that any conjecture was true.
