Is Kim Jong Un’s sister pregnant? Reports of new addition to North Korean dynasty after Olympics visit

The Jong Un dynasty looks set to continue in North Korea – with reports Kim’s sister is pregnant.

Kim Yo Jong faced intense scrutiny during her recent trip to represent the regime during the Winter Olympics in South Korea.

Virtually nothing was previously known about Kim Yo Jong, and her relaxed manner and big smiles left a positive impression on the world stage.

How much power she exerts in the North Korean dictatorship remains uncertain.

But according to reports in the Korean Herald, she will be making at least one significant contribution by extending the Kim family.

Yo Jong was reportedly struggling with the discomforts of early pregnancy during her visit.

In her first appearance on the global stage, Kim Yo Jong had her every move closely scrutinised.

Head held high, Kim’s sister returns to North Korea

SEOUL (Reuters) – A prim, young woman with a high forehead and hair half swept back quietly gazes at the throngs of people pushing for a glimpse of her, a faint smile on her lips and eyelids low as four bodyguards jostle around her.

In her first appearance on the global stage, Kim Yo Jong, the sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, had her every move closely scrutinized.

Crowds applauded as she stood for the South Korean anthem during the opening ceremony for the start of the Winter Olympic Games, while her big smiles and relaxed manner left a largely positive impression on the South Korean public.

But her sometimes aloof expression and high-tilted chin also spoke of someone who sees herself “of royalty” and “above anyone else”, leadership experts and some critics said.

‘Criminal Minds’ Season 12 Spoilers: Episode 19 ‘True North’ Promo And Synopsis Released Online [VIDEO]

“Criminal Minds” is back with another interesting case for the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) to solve this week. Last week, the profilers on the CBS show flew to New York when a young girl disappeared. The team seemed to have a vampire on their hands – an unsub that drains three liters of blood from its victims.

Fortunately, the case wrapped up. Unfortunately, Dr. Spencer Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler), who is in prison for allegedly murdering a doctor in Mexico, isn’t doing so well. He accused former FBI Agent Calvin Shaw (Harold Perrineau) of actually running the prison and pulling the strings.

What will happen this week in “Criminal Minds”?

German police target North Africans in holiday sweeps

BERLIN — The police operation in Cologne sought to avoid a repeat of last year, when suspects — including asylum seekers — staged a wave of New Year’s Eve sexual assaults. Authorities over the weekend questioned hundreds of men referred to as “Nafris” — short for North Africans. They took nearly 100 into custody.

But was it a security operation or an exercise in mass racial profiling?

After the deadly Dec. 19 truck attack on a Berlin Christmas market by a Tunisian man, Germany is more polarized than ever over how to deal with hundreds of thousands of recently arrived asylum seekers, including many from the Middle East and North Africa.

The New Year’s sweeps in Cologne, about 300 miles southwest of Berlin, became the latest flash point, with police being both hailed and criticized for deploying newly aggressively tactics.

The divide illustrates the intensifying debate in Germany — and across Europe — over
