North Korea Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un was reported to have died following a botched heart operation by Hong Kong-backed news channel HKSTV on Saturday. Kim Jong-un is ‘alive, well and staying at holiday resort’, a South Korean official has said following rumours of his death. Chung-in Moon, South Korea president Moon Jae-in's foreign policy advisor, has moved to quash the reported rumours of his death, saying the North Korea Supreme Leader is instead staying at his holiday resort on the North Korean coast.
"Our government position is firm.....Kim Jong-un is alive and well, " Chung-in Moon told Fox News. "He has been staying in the Wonsan area since April 13. No suspicious movements have so far been detected."
