Portraits of Kim Jong Un’s grandfather, Kim Il Sung and father, Kim Jong Il, have been removed from the main square of Pyongyang — apparently as part of a “major renovation”, according to a report by the New York Post.

The last time the portrait area in the square was altered was back in 2012, after the previous leader, Kim Jong Il died.

Speculations of Kim Jong Un’s health (and death) have been widely talked about by the media over the past few weeks, after the North Korean leader reportedly collapsed during a countryside visit.

The last time Kim Jong Un made his public appearance was at a ribbon cutting ceremony for a completed fertiliser factory on May 4th.
