Bosnia has granted a student visa to North Korean leader Kim Jong-il's grandson Han-sol, the Yomiuri Shimbun quoted a local Bosnia-Herzegovina newspaper last Saturday as reporting.
Kim Han-sol (16), who has been admitted by the United World College in Mostar in southern Bosnia, is expected to travel to Mostar as soon as he gets his visa, the daily said. Mostar is about 72 km southwest of the capital Sarajevo.
Han-sol will live at a dormitory and study alongside other students at the UWCiM for two years, the daily added. The school was founded in 2006. The new semester already started on Sept. 1 with a total of 74 students from 29 countries on the list of new admissions.
Han-sol is the son of Kim Jong-il's eldest son Jong-nam. He had originally planned to enroll at sister school Li Po Chun UWC in Hong Kong last month but was denied a visa.
Kim Jong-nam reportedly plans to move from Macau to Europe next year and the school is close to where his family will live.
