North Korean media silent on Kim Jong Un’s health, whereabouts

It was business as usual Wednesday for North Korean state media, which reported about Kim Jong Un’s achievements and undated musings on the economy — without mentioning the despot’s health or whereabouts.

Speculation about the leader’s condition first arose when he didn’t show up for the anniversary celebration of the birthday of the hermit kingdom’s founding father and Kim’s grandfather, Kim Il Sung, on April 15.

The top headlines from the state news agency KCNA on Wednesday included pieces on sports equipment, mulberry picking and a meeting in Bangladesh to study the rogue regime’s “juche,” or self-reliance ideology, Reuters reported.

The official Rodong Sinmun newspaper published older or undated comments attributed to Kim about the economy, the textile industry and city development, among other topics.
