Rumours are claiming that Kim Jong Un has died – including a top Hong Kong journalist.
Vice director of HKSTV Hong Kong Satellite Television Shijian Xingzou says that a ‘very solid source’ has told her Kim Jonh Un has died.
Separately, one Japanese media outlet claims that the North Korean dictator is in a ‘vegetative state’ after he underwent heart surgery.
China has sent a team to North Korea including medical experts to confirm the incident on North Korean leader Kim Jong Un according to three people familiar with the situation.
The trip by the Chinese doctors and officials comes amid conflicting reports about the health of the North Korean leader, with western outlets unable to immediately determine what the trip by the Chinese team signalled in terms of Kim’s health.
