U.S. official: No evidence N. Korean leader is dead

The U.S. intelligence community has found no evidence to suggest North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is dead, a senior U.S. official said Friday following posts on China’s version of Twitter that claimed Kim had been assassinated while in Beijing, according to CNN. U.S. intelligence officials have been looking into such rumors for more than a week, according to the official, who has direct knowledge of the latest U.S. analysis. “With that society you can never be 100% sure, but we just don’t see any evidence of it,” the official told CNN. “It’s a closed society, but at this point we do not believe it’s true.”
