South Korean intelligence says ‘no signs’ Kim Jong-un had heart surgery

Seoul’s spy agency has joined other state officials in dispelling rumors around North Korean Leader Kim Jong-un’s health, insisting there is no reason to believe he underwent a heart operation as speculation refuses to die down.

“Evidence for Kim Jong-un’s health abnormality is absent,” the National Intelligence Service said on Wednesday morning, according to Yonhap News, adding that it had seen “no signs of heart surgery.”

The rebuttal comes after three weeks of conjecture about the North Korean leader, who was rumored to be in grave condition after undergoing surgery, while other reports suggested he might be in a “vegetative state,” infected with Covid-19, or even dead.
