New photos have been released that North Korean state media claims to show leader Kim Jong Un in his first public appearances since vanishing from the public eye nearly six weeks ago.
For the first time, photos of Kim appear to show him at two public events and using a walking stick.
The state media story is dated Tuesday, but does not include the date that Kim actually made the visits, which will leave conspiracy theorists with plenty to talk about.
After all, Kim's disappearance sparked rumors ranging from enormous weight gain to a political coup.
Kyung Lah has this report.
