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.
