Where is North Korea’s Dictator?
By Harold Hutchison
The status North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un has become an open question in recent days, as the son of Kim Jong-Il has been absent from public appearances for a month.
According to a VOA report, the 31-year-old Kim Jong Un, who took over after his father’s death in 2011, has been seen limping in videos released from North Korea, and has not been seen since 3 September. Newsmax.com and other outlets reported on rumors of a coup, while the London Telegraph reported that Pyongyang was on “lockdown.”
