Kim Jong-un celebrates birthday in week of 'hydrogen bomb' tests
2 hours ago
Millions of people living in North Korea will be expected to join forces to celebrate the birthday of the man who leads the country, Kim Jong-un.
Little is still known about the elusive leader, including exactly when he was born.
