North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and his wife Ri Sol-ju watched a basketball friendly put together by ex-NBA star Dennis Rodman, the official Rodong Sinmun daily said Thursday.
In a rare move, the daily also printed pictures of military Politburo chief Choe Ryong-hae and Prime Minister Pak Pong-ju watching the match with their wives.
The move appears aimed at easing tensions in the North following the execution of former eminence grise Jang Song-taek.
