Kim Jong Un visits factories, school in first public appearances in three weeks

DPRK leader conducted mammoth tour of Jagang province earlier in the week, state media reports

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was on Saturday reported by state media to have visited a number of economic sites in the country's north-western Jagang province, in his first public appearance since the country's test-firing of several missiles on May 7.

The visits saw the DPRK leader tour, among other sites, a machine tool factory, a general precision machine plant, a tractor factory, and a "General Machine Factory" – facilities which have in the past been tied to the country's military-industrial complex.
