North Korea’s state media has shown photos of a daughter of ruler Kim Jong Un and his wife Ri Sol Ju for the first time. Kim was present with his “beloved daughter and wife” at the site of the launch of an ICBM on Friday, North Korean media reported on Saturday.

The youthful-looking daughter, who resembles her father, wore a white winter jacket and red shoes in the photos. It was not clear what her name was and how old she was. One photo showed her and her father holding hands in front of the launch vehicle from which the missile, dubbed a “monster missile” by South Korean media, was to be launched.

According to observers, the photos were apparently intended to demonstrate Kim’s self-confidence and his family ties. Nothing is known about internal discussions in the isolated country about a possible successor to Kim. South Korea’s intelligence agency said last year that Kim’s younger and influential sister, Kim Yo Jong, now appears to be the “number two de facto leader.”

Little is known about the private life of the autocratic ruler. South Korean intelligence believes that Kim and Ri have two daughters and a son. North Korea has never revealed the existence of Kim’s children, South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency reported. Ri gave birth to a child in 2010, 2013 and 2017.

Kim, who is 38 years old according to South Korea, was proclaimed supreme leader of the armed forces, the party and the state after the death of his father Kim Jong Il in late 2011. The Kim dynasty has ruled the impoverished but well-armed state for more than 70 years.

It is a special program because there is the “double boom”: Only two top-class guests discuss “Maybrit Illner”. They are Economics Minister Robert Habeck and Christian Sewing from Deutsche Bank. Is Germany stumbling in the mega crisis? Robert Habeck seems touched.

The Berlin Zoo has to close for weeks. The reason: the avian influenza. It is not yet clear when visitors will be allowed back onto the site.

On Friday night, numerous TV stations in Europe did not show a signal after midnight. The interruption lasted up to five hours. The reason was work on the fiber optic network near Frankfurt. Numerous broadcasters were affected.
