Kim Jong-Un Visits North Korea Orphanage

Kim Jong-Un has been photographed visiting an orphanage in Pyongyang.

The North Korean leader smiled as some of the children greeted him with hugs.

One orphanage worker held her hand over her mouth in awe as he entered the room she was in.

At one point, he sat down to look at a row of five babies who were lying on the floor together.

Earlier this year, Mr Kim was said to have ordered the killing of some of his executed uncle's close relatives, including children.

South Korean news agency Yonhap quoted "multiple sources" as saying General Jang Song-Thaek's brothers, children and grandchildren were rounded up and shot.
