Japan's Mainichi Shimbun claims to have obtained North Korean propaganda documents that seem designed to boost the standing of leader Kim Jong-il's son Jong-un, lending credence to reports that Jong-un has been picked as his father's heir apparent.
The documents contain slogans such as, "General Kim Jong-un has broad military insight and is matchlessly talented" and, "Revered Comrade Kim Jong-un is the successor to the peerless man who has led our military and people."
The daily said the documents are probably being used by the Ministry of the People's Armed Forces or the Ministry of State Security and appear to have been written after May Day because they include an account of the May Day fireworks, the newspaper said.
