Chinese authorities arrested several suspected North Korean agents, who police believe were sent to assassinate Kim Han Sol, the son of the late Kim Jong Nam, the young North Korean leader's half brother, Bloomberg reports, citing South Korean media.

This undated picture released from North Korea's official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) on October 29, 2017 shows North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un (C) inspecting the Pyongyang Cosmetics Factory, as his wife Ri Sol-Ju (R) looks on.

Photographs released Sunday and transmitted on state TV appeared to show the North Korean leader talking to officials and inspecting the products on display during the visit.

He was accompanied by his wife and daughter, who are rarely seen in public.

KCNA reported that Kim was "very pleased" with the factory.

The country has reportedly achieved good results in producing national cosmetics.

All performers donated their fees to Linkin Park's charity Music for Relief's fundraiser programme One More Light Fund . The three-hour concert took place on October 27 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles and was live streamed on YouTube.

Kim toured the Pyongyang Cosmetics Factory with other senior officials, according to a report published by Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).

"This can help women fulfil their dreams of becoming more attractive". Ri's presence is so rare that rumors about her whereabouts started circulating after she apparently disappeared for months after an appearance in 2016.

The pair had made a trip to a cosmetics factory in North Korea, according to the BBC. "We will examine the impact our sanctions are having, as well as our efforts to empower the North Korean people with the truth about Kim Jong-un's brutal human rights abuses".

While her public appearances are few and far between, she has recently been filmed celebrating a successful ballistic missile testing. Neither Kim's father, Kim Jong Il, nor his grandfather, Kim Il Sung, were ever pictured with their partners in public.

"As we intensify our efforts to counter North Korea's nuclear threats, we must consider the full array of policy options at our disposal", Royce, the committee chairman, said. Ri, a former star singer also known for her affinity for luxury fashion, is known to have three children with Kim.
