Report: Kim Jong Il has pancreatic cancer

A report in South Korean media is fueling the ongoing speculation about the deteriorating health of North Korean leader Kim Jong Il. YTN News, citing unidentified intelligence sources in South Korea and China, reported Monday that the 67-year-old leader has pancreatic cancer. South Korea’s Unification Ministry flatly denied the report, which comes a week after a frail-looking Kim appeared in public for the first time in months.
