Speculation

Pete and Sophie Sandiford expressed sympathy for the dictator.

"Can't he take a break?" Pete joked.

But Mary Killen was not so kind about the North Korean leader and his family.

She said: "I think what will happen is, if he is dead, and this is fake video, then the sister will just need to put things in place for her to take the reigns."
