North Korea's leader has taken his daughter to a meeting with missile scientists in her second public appearance, in which state media called her Kim Jong Un's "most beloved" child, deepening outside debate over whether she is being primed as his successor.
The daughter, believed to Kim's second child named Ju Ae and about 9 or 10 years old, was first unveiled to the outside world last weekend in state media. On Sunday, the North's state media mentioned her for the second time, saying she and Kim took group photos with missile scientists involved in what it called the test-launch of its Hwasong-17 ICBM.KCNA described her as Kim's "most beloved" or "precious" child.
South Korean media previously speculated Kim has three children and that the first child is a son while the third one is a daughter.
