Multiple news sources are reporting that North Korean Leader Kim Jong-Un is in “fragile condition” after reportedly undergoing delicate surgery. 

The Associated Press says the South Korean government is looking into U.S. media reports saying Kim is in grave danger.

CNN, meanwhile, reported that Kim recently missed the celebration of his grandfather, North Korea founder Kim Il Sung's birthday on April 15, which raised speculation about his well-being.

An online newspaper based in South Korea called Daily NK that focuses on North Korea reported that Kim received a “cardiovascular system procedure” on April 12, the CNN report added.

But the AP says the Unification Ministry, which deals with inter-Korean affairs couldn’t confirm the report.

Kim was last seen publicly on April 11.

Kim Jong-Un has been leader of the famously reclusive nation since 2011, taking over from his father, Kim Jong-Il.
