FILE - This is a file photo made available on Monday July 9, 2012 by the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) and distributed in Tokyo by the Korea News Service of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, right, and Ri Sol Ju as they clap with others during a performance by North Korea's new Moranbong band in Pyongyang, North Korea earlier in July. North Korea's new, young leader Kim Jong Un is married, state TV reported Wednesday July 25, 2012 for the first time in a brief and otherwise routine announcement that ends weeks of speculation about a beautiful woman who has accompanied him to recent public events. Kim toured an amusement park with his "wife, comrade Ri Sol Ju" on Tuesday, while a crowd cheered for the leader, the news anchor said without giving any more details about Ri, including how long they had been married.
