North Korea's Kim Jong-un in 'grave danger' after surgery

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is in grave danger after undergoing surgery, CNN reported on Monday citing an unnamed US official.

Separately, a Seoul-based website run mostly by North Korean defectors reported that Kim underwent a “cardiovascular surgical procedure” and was now mostly recovered.

His health has deteriorated in recent months due to heavy smoking, obesity and overwork, the report said.

A South Korean government official told the country’s Yonhap news agency that Kim was not seriously ill, contradicting the report.
