Kim Jong Un wanted to 'horrify world' with bro's murder

Christy Curtis | 29 September, 2017, 01:23

Few details are known about Ri Sol-ju, the wife of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. "I don't think he's going to ever do any of these things".

Little is known about the life Ms Ri led before marrying Mr Kim, but South Korean intelligence reports have said she once studied singing in China, and visited South Korea in 2005 as a member of North Korea's cheerleading squad. Even after President Trump's United Nations speech and even after his "fire and fury" comments, the leader of his opposition party is saying it's all going to be okay.

Countries that once welcomed North Korean forced laborers to farms and construction sites are banning workers or asking existing workers to leave. Leave your comments below.

The Business Insider said Ri is known for her taste in western fashion and has been seen carrying expensive bags by designers like Dior and Chanel, and that has often led to worldwide scorn with most of the country's population living in poverty.

It's unclear when Kim and Ri got married. He has, however, displayed a greater willingness to break rank and engage with his population, and observers say his unprecedented step of introducing the public to his wife was symbolic of that.

But a former intelligence official with South Korea's spy agency said that Kim wanted the murder to be public so as to strike fear into the hearts of his adversaries.

NZ dollar under pressure as greenback pushes higher
Trump has praised Yellen since taking office, saying he approves of the Fed's current low interest rates and respects the chair. Stocks opened higher and traded in positive territory for much of the day before running out of steam in the final hour.

The name is a title commonly given to President John F. Kennedy and First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy's marriage, which was often depicted with great admiration in US media at the time.

Ri Sol Ju, who is believed to be 28, was officially identified by North Korea's state-run media as Kim's wife in 2012, the Business Insider reported.

North Korea has refused to accept the dead man was Kim Jong-un's half brother, suggesting instead he died of a heart attack.

Malaysia may be further distancing itself from Pyongyang following weapons provocations.

North Korea did invade South Korea in 1950 and bombed Yeonpyeong Island in 2010. Trump has threatened to "unleash fire and fury like the world has never seen" and "totally destroy" North Korea. Still, on July 2, 2014, supreme leader Kim organized a swimming contest among his navy's top brass, a move Madden said was created to bind him with younger soldiers, who saw their usually highly-decorated superiors in nothing but their bathing suits taking orders from an obese Kim.
