That was the rumor spreading around Twitter on Tuesday, with a fake account pretending to be South Korean defense minister Han Min-goo making the claim that ended up becoming international news. The tweet claimed that a violent coup had claimed the life of Kim Jong-un.
By Choi Sung-jin The Defense Ministry denied a rumor Friday that a suicide bomber has killed North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. A foreign Internet site spread the rumor.
