SEOUL — North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un says his reclusive nation plans more "satellite launches" – which the West sees as a cover for ballistic missile tests – calling space exploration a "strategic goal," state media said Friday. "Conquering space is... a fierce class struggle against the hostile forces seeking to usurp our peace and sovereignty," Kim was quoted as saying at a Wednesday awards ceremony for those involved in this month's rocket launch. He also underscored the need to successfully launch "more working satellites," Pyongyang's KCNA news agency said. "The advance toward space... is the DPRK's (North Korea's) strategic goal," he said.

When state TV showed Ri Sol-Ju attending a memorial service for her husband's late father Kim Jong-Il in mid-December, she appeared heavily pregnant with her loose-fit traditional dress barely hiding a swollen belly. But more recent images of her attending an official New Year's party showed her wearing a well-fitted two-piece skirt suit with no physical sign of pregnancy. Speculation was fuelled by the official performance, which included an all-woman band singing a version of the Christmas favourite "When a Child is Born" made popular by Johnny Mathis. South Korean television and newspapers on Thursday ran before-and-after photos with speculative captions. "The bulging stomach has gone down ... has Ri Sol-Ju given birth?" asked the Dong-A Ilbo daily. "Ri Sol-Ju with her tummy reduced in 11 days. Has she come … [Read more...] about An heir for North Korea’s Kim Jong-Un?
