Kim Jong-un reveals his daughter during nuclear missile test: Reports

North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un reportedly appeared with his young daughter in public for the first time. The girl, believed to be named Kim Chu-ae, joined him at an inspection of a major intercontinental ballistic missile launch yesterday.

Several photos were published by North Korea's state news agency KCNA, showing the two holding hands while they chat, speaking with officials, inspecting missiles and watching the launch from a viewing deck.

The pair stood hand-in-hand during the test, which was condemned by the US. Kim leads one of the world's most secretive states, and very little is known about his personal life.

Kim is believed to have as many as three children, two girls and a boy, experts said. Some observers believed one of those children was seen in footage of celebrations for a national holiday in September.

North Korea test-fired a Hwasong-17 intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) yesterday, KCNA reported today.

North Korea has never announced who would follow Kim in the event he is incapacitated, and with few details known about his young children, analysts had speculated that his sister and loyalists could form a regency until a successor is old enough to take over.

Kim's wife, Ri Sol Ju, also made a rare appearance at Friday's launch, according to KCNA.
