      North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has resurfaced after 11 days out of the public eye. The official [North] Korean Central News Agency on Tuesday said Kim visited a newly opened ophthalmology hospital in Pyongyang.

      The last time Kim appeared in the state media was on Oct. 7, when he visited a souvenir factory in Pyongyang, but he was nowhere to be seen at the Workers Party's anniversary on Oct. 10.
