Is Kim Jong-Un dead? Twitter and Weibo reports claim North Korea’s leader assassinated in Beijing

Reports on Weibo and Twitter are claiming that North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un has been assassinated. However, despite a few blurry photos of cars at the North Korean embassy in Beijing, there seems to be absolutely no proof of the story, and most people are currently assuming that it’s fake.

The story claims that gunmen broke into the North Korean embassy in Beijing at about 14:45 on Friday afternoon local time. And that’s about it! It seems an unusual number of cars were parked outside the embassy during the afternoon, but that hardly means there’s been an assassination attempt.

So far, it seems that the rumours are false. And while it’s never wise to completely dismiss such stories, it seems we’ll probably soon be treated to some new photos of Kim Jong-Un looking at things or, if he’s feeling particularly animated (and alive), pointing at things.
