North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un in Critical Condition after Heart Surgery
Daily NK cited that Kim who had a heart surgery recently in Pyongyang, largest city and capital of North Korea was improving. Though the Unification Ministry, which deals with inter-Korean affairs didn’t comment on it.
It all began when Kim Jong Un missed the birthday celebration of his late grandfather Kim Il Sung on April 15. April 15 is the country’s most important holiday.
Though this isn’t the first time that Kim has vanished. In 2014, Kim had disappeared from the public eye for around six weeks before again appearing with a cane. Spy agency from South Korean had then said that he had a cyst removed from his ankle.
Kim Jong Un is the third generation of his family to rule the country after he took power after his father’s death in December 2011.
