North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has made his first public appearance in more than 40 days, with a visit to a new housing development.
The 31-year-old has not appeared in public since attending a concert with his wife on September 3 - missing an important political anniversary on Friday as well as a recent session of the country's parliament.
His absence fuelled speculation of ill-health or possible political turbulence in the secretive country, but today the country's official newspaper Rodong Sinmun, printed multiple photos of a smiling Kim standing with the apparent aid of a walking stick.
Last week a source with access to the North's leadership told reporters that Kim was in firm control of the country but had hurt his leg taking part in a military drill.
Today's newspaper report did not say when the visit had been made, or refer to Kim's unusually lengthy absence from public view.
