Unverified. Here is the newsline allegedly: According to reliable sources, North Korean leader jinzhengen in Beijing in February 2012, at 2 o'clock and 45 minutes, unknown persons broke into his residence shot and was subsequently shot and killed by the bodyguard. The latest news, the DPRK embassy vehicles surge in the number of times, from the initial 78 vehicles, up to now has been flooded with the embassy, some more than 80 vehicles, North Korea is certainly a major event. . .

The entire NK arsenal is now controlled by...?
This just in...
Jimmy Carter issued a press release extending his profound sorrow and grief over the loss of so great a leader.
"Ahhh, crap! How the hell did Welker drop that pass???"
Rumors that Kim Jong-un, the countrys supreme leader, has been assassinated just months after he took power originated on Chinese microblogging service Weibo and have now spread all over Twitter.
Others are reporting that Jong-un, believed to be 28 years old, may be on the run rather than dead, but both reports claim that some kind of coup is taking place.
One person on Weibo wrote (loose translation): “north korea’s biggest leader kim jung un, this morning in beijing time 2:45 am, had his residence broken into and was assassinated by unidentified people, who were shot dead by his bodyguards in korea’s embassy in beijing, vehicles are rapidly increasing in number, and have surpassed 30 of them, this sort of battle formation hasn’t been seen in over two years. please verify this.”
The rumors remain unsubstantiated. However, the reports are beginning to attract a great deal of attention, especially now that a couple of American news outlets including the Atlantic Wire have reported on them.
Weibo is in many ways the Chinese equivalent of Twitter, and disseminates news at a rapid pace. People were tipped off that there was something happening that involved Jong-Un, who succeeded his late father Kim Jong-Il, because of the mass of cars parked outside of his resident.
For good reason, many Twitter users are exercising caution, aware that news like this can spread without much to sustain it.
A sample of the dubious tweeters:
Kim Jong Un apparently assasinated in Beijing. Source: ‘Chinese Twitter’. What does that even mean? One Chinese person’s account? or @China? AdamThompson1 tweeted.
Wait for confirmation on Kim Jong Un death rumors. Twitter is also reporting that Jonas Brothers are the best band, Matt Binder wrote.
Rumors from Chinese twitter that Kim Jong Un assassinated this morning in Beijing. pretty unlikely, Dan Bennett posted.
So did social media spread the news or cause unnecessary hysteria? We will update when the news develops.
The answer is probably no, despite Chinese microblog Weibo being lit up by the rumor that Kim has been assassinated.
Jo Xu, a writer with the popular China SMACK site, has tweeted that nothing is verified only report of large number of cars at NK embassy, but rumors like this pop up every other week.
So anything is possible, but well need more than the notoriously unreliable Chinese twitterverse to go on.
Didn’t an aunt or uncle dispute his accension? IIRC they were questioned over their loyalty.
If true, how very nice and tidy. He gets killed and his killer gets killed.
I am thinking about the latest underground nuclear test stories in NK.
For some reason, I wouldn’t be surprised if Kim had some doubles, a la Ernst Stavro Blofeld.
Or in real life Saddam Hussein.
WOW! This is big freakin news, if true.
I'm not going to say it!
NOTHING happens in N. Korea that isn’t sanctioned by China. If the next leader is a solid senior member of the Party or the highest ranking general, you’ll know the assassination was a China takedown.
I believed in the past he was described as a ‘Nancy Boy’.
She’s obviously the one Giants fan in the crowd.
Ha! Which makes ya wonder what kind of boobs the older brothers were? They got passed over for Un.
