BREAKING: Kim Jong Un in “Grave Danger” After Surgery [Update 4: Maybe, Maybe Not]

1 min read

CNN is just now reporting that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has had surgery and is in grave danger:

US source: North Korean leader in grave danger after surgery

The US is monitoring intelligence that North Korea's leader, Kim Jong Un, is in grave danger after a surgery, according to a US official with direct knowledge.
Kim recently missed the celebration of his grandfather's birthday on April 15, which raised speculation about his well-being.  He had been seen four days before that at a government meeting.

This story is only a few minutes old; I will be monitoring for more details. This could be very serious, as Kim has personal control of a nuclear weapons stockpile and there may not be a clear line of succession or control.
