North Korean TV shows Kim Jong Un with bandaged head

In the footage aired on Friday, which Reuters cannot independently verify, Kim was seen with a bandage on his head at meetings held from July 24 to 27 in Pyongyang.

The bandage had been removed on the last day of the meeting and a dark spot could be seen in its place in video aired by KRT.

Amid speculation over Kim's health, South Korea's National Intelligence Service (NIS) assessed the leader had not health issues and there was no scar on his head, lawmakers said on Tuesday after being briefed by head of NIS.
