Kim Jong-un: North Korean leader rides horse up sacred mountain

 

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has climbed the country's highest mountain on horseback, according to state media.

A series of photos released by KCNA show Mr Kim astride a white horse on a snow-covered Mount Paektu.

This is not the first time he has scaled the 2,750-metre peak and analysts say such gestures have been known to precede major announcements, reports BBC.

The mountain holds a special place in the country's identity and is feted as the birthplace of Kim Jong-un's father.
