Questions about the North Korean despot Kim Jong Un's health have increased after the communist leader appeared in public with dark spots on the back of his head.
In photos taken of Jong Un last week, the dark markings on the back of his head are occasionally covered by a large nude coloured plaster or bandage.
The large, dark green spot or bruise can be seen on the rear right side of his head but there is no indication of what has caused it, reports NK News.
The peculiar markings and bandage follow concerns over the supreme leader's health after noticeable weight loss in his appearance.
At the end of June North Korean state media described Jong Un's appearance as "emaciated" in acknowledgement of his slimming frame.
The dark spots and plaster were first seen on the back of Jong Un's head at the end of July when he attended a number of events including a military parade between July 24-27.
The plasters and markings could be used in an attempt to gain sympathy from the public who will be concerned about their idol's health.

She is known to be a trusted confidante of tubby tyrant Kim and her role on the political stage is growing.
