Kim Jong Un

South Korean officials said the building, just north of the border, had been destroyed.
The secretive state of North Korea has claimed it has had no cases of coronavirus – but experts say that is very unlikely to be the case. So how has the global pandemic affected the country? Despite strict border controls and enforced quarantining measures in place, the country’s poor healthcare system would spell disaster if a widespread outbreak were to take place. Managing editor of NK News, Oliver Hotham, tells us more.
The dictator – who had recently missed the country's most important holiday – reportedly attended the opening of a fertiliser factory.
The dictator has now missed two major events, fuelling speculation about his health.
US sources say the North Korean leader is in critical condition, but South Korea is telling a different story.
Reports state that the leader has had heart surgery and is “gravely ill” following the procedure. Kim has been the dictator of North Korea and of its nuclear arsenal since his father, Kim Jong-il passed away in 2011.
Reports that the dictator had undergone a cardiovascular procedure came amid speculation over his health, after he missed a key event earlier this month.
But Donald Trump has insisted Kim Jong Un "signed a contract" so everything will be OK.
The propaganda stunt came days after nuclear negotiations between North Korea and the US fell apart.
