The New York Post reported on the possible death of the North Korean leader. According to journalists, the deputy director of Hong Kong satellite television HKSTV claimed that Kim Jong-un was dead, citing “a very solid source.
Other unconfirmed reports, attributed to high-ranking party sources in Beijing, said the operation failed because the surgeon’s hands were trembling heavily.
The publication notes, however, that there are only rumors.
Japanese media claim that DPRK leader Kim Jong-un is in a “vegetative state” after heart surgery. According to Fox News, the Japanese magazine Shūkan Gendai wrote about the deterioration of the North Korean leader, citing a surgeon who was involved in his treatment. The physician said he was too nervous during the operation. As a result, the surgery led the leader to a “vegetative state” in North Korea.
Earlier on April 25 it became known that Chinese authorities sent a group of medical experts to North Korea. According to Reuters, this is due to the information about possible health problems of DPRK leader Kim Jong-un that appeared earlier.
US President Donald Trump said on Thursday that reports about Kim Jong-un’s deteriorating health, which were reported by some American media, are not true.
