North Korea leader Kim Jong Un, who is staying away from limelight, was recently photographed out in public with a dark spot as well as a bandage at the back of his head during a public event has once again fuelled speculations about his health, which is a long a topic of global fascination.
According to reports, Kim appeared at events of the Korean People’s Army from July 24 to July 27 and was also seen in footage of a war veterans conference and related programmes from July 27 to July 29.
The images from these events show the North Korean leader without the bandage about the size of a few postage stamps and in some a dark greenish spot or bruise on his head could be seen.
"The cause or nature of the large, dark green spot or bruise on the rear right side of his head, which was covered with a bandage in some footage, is still unknown and is difficult to diagnose using only images," it said.
It is widely acknowledged that Kim Jong Un's health is one of the most closely guarded secrets in North Korea. In June, he was also seen suffering from a dramatic weight loss. Pictures of marks on Kim Jong Un's wrists last year had also triggered speculation that he might have had a medical procedure.
