Senator Lindsey Graham adds weight to rumours Kim Jong Un is dead

por Chester Eade (2020-04-28)

US Senator Lindsey Graham has weighed in on reports Kim Jong Un has died, saying he would be 'shocked' if the North Korean despot was not 'dead or incapacitated', as the dictator's 31-year-old sister emerges as his most likely successor.

005Graham said in such a tightly controlled state as North Korea rumors about the leader's death would not be allowed to go 'unanswered'.

The South Carolina representative has made regular comments on North Korea to US state media and, last year, was reported as a powerful foreign policy adviser to the Trump administration. 

Kim has not been seen publicly since April 11, when he led a meeting of the ruling Workers' Party committee of policy makers according to North Korean state media. 

Though North Korea has never announced who would succeed Kim Jong Un in the event of his death, analysts believe his sister, Kim Yo-Jong, would likely form a regency with a number of loyalists until one of Kim's young children is old enough to over take the reigns.   

A top Hong Kong television director has claimed a 'very solid source' has told her that Kim Jong Un is dead. He was last seen in public on April 11 at a meeting of the Workers' Party committee of policymakers in Pyongyang

The vice director of Hong Kong Satellite Television (HKSTV) Shijian Xingzou has said a 'very solid source' has told her Kim Jong Un, 36, is already dead. 

She has 15 million followers on Chinese social media Weibo, and is also the niece of one of the country's foreign ministers. 

Separately, a Japanese media outlet has claimed Kim is in a 'vegetative state' after he underwent heart surgery earlier in the month.

The dictator's 250-metre-long train has been seen near his Wonsan holiday complex on satellite images as recently as April 23, according to news website 38North.

It was parked at a station reserved for the Kim family. The website said although the dictator's whereabouts remain unknown, the trains position suggests he has visited the resort. 

The most recent photos, from April 23, show the train preparing for departure.

Kim's private jet, frequently used for trips to Wonsan, remains on the runway in Pyongyang, South Korean broadcaster SBS reported.

The Wonsan complex includes nine large guesthouses and recreation centre, as well as a shooting range and covered dock believed to be for a yacht. At the centre of the grounds is a large building that was constructed shortly after Kim Jong Un came to power in 2014.
