Is Kim Jong Un dead ?

Korean Peninsula expert believes North Korea’s Kim Jong Un is dead.

Unconfirmed reports about North Korea leader Kim Jong Un’s death appeared online after China sent doctors to North Korea to help determine his current health status.

Meanwhile, Chief ally China has sent a team including doctors to North Korea to check on its leader Kim Jong-un following reports last week that said the 36-year-old was critically ill.

Kim Jong Un, according to earlier reports, was “conspicuously absent” from birthday celebrations on April 15 of his grandfather and state founder Kim ii Sung.

He has not been seen in public since a meeting on April 11, which fuelled speculation about his health.

The US is monitoring intelligence that suggests North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong Un, is in grave danger after undergoing a previous surgery, according to a US official with direct knowledge.

National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien said the US is “keeping a close eye” on reports about Kim’s health.
