N. Korean leader's grandson to study in Bosnia: Reports

The Korea Herald/Asia News Network

Thursday, Sep 29, 2011

A grandson of North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il has enrolled in an international college in Bosnia, local papers reported on Wednesday.

The 16-year-old Kim Han-sol, son of the North Korean leader's oldest son Kim Jong-nam (right), is on a list of 72 sixth-year students of the United World Colleges' (UWC)'s local branch located in the southern town of Mostar, according to the Vecernji List.

The UWC is a network of colleges throughout the world promoting international and intercultural understanding. It is attended notably by pupils from war-affected areas.

The information was revealed by other students' parents who were surprised by the choice of the grandson of the leader of one of the most isolated countries in the world, the daily said.

Officials from the prestigious Mostar school refused to confirm or deny the media reports.

The Dnevni Avaz daily reported that Kim Han-sol had applied for a student visa at Bosnia's embassy in Beijing and had not yet arrived in the Balkan country.

"We cannot say in advance whether a visa will be granted to this North Korean national," an anonymous Bosnian official was quoted as saying.
