Kim Jong Il's widow treated in Berlin clinic: Report
SEOUL (AFP) - A woman believed to be late North Korean leader Kim Jong Il's widow, Kim Ok, was treated at a hospital in Berlin earlier this year, a South Korean newspaper reported on Saturday.
She received treatment for cervical disc and hip problems at a university hospital in the German capital in May and June, the Chosun Ilbo daily said, quoting officials at the hospital.
She arrived in Berlin in mid-May on a direct flight from Beijing and stayed at a luxury hotel. She was accompanied by North Korean diplomats when she visited the hospital, it said.
The daily carried two pictures of her, one of which showed a middle-aged woman wearing a khaki jacket and a pair of white sandals, a grey and blue scarf around her neck, sitting on a row of chairs arranged along a hospital wall.
