North Korean leader Kim Jong Il today made his first public appearance in more than a month.
The Korean Central News Agency reported that Mr Kim watched a football match held to mark the 62nd anniversary of the founding of the university named after his late father, North Korea founder Kim Il Sung.
The 66-year-old leader had not been seen in public since mid August. US and South Korean officials say he suffered a stroke.
Officials in North Korea have denied that Mr Kim was ill.
