North Korea claims assassination attempt

In this Saturday, April 15, 2017, photo, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un waves during a military parade to celebrate the 105th birth anniversary of Kim Il Sung in Pyongyang, North Korea. The broad avenues of Pyongyang were, by authoritarian North Korea’s standards, fairly empty ahead of Tuesday’s 85th anniversary of the founding of the Korean People’s Army, one of the biggest events on the country’s calendar. In recent years, the army commemoration has taken a backseat to the April 15th celebration of North Korea founder Kim Il Sung’s birth, which saw thousands choking the avenues to prepare for the country’s biggest holiday.
