SEOUL, Dec. 20 (UPI) -- The leader of South Korea's intelligence service said he has doubts about the time and location of North Korean leader Kim Jong Il's death, officials said.
North Korean media reported Kim died Saturday while on a train during a field guidance tour. However, during a special session of the National Assembly Intelligence Committee, National Intelligence Service head Won Sei-hoon said a train used by Kim was spotted at Pyongyang's train station at the time of his death announced by the North, The Korean Herald reported.
"There were no signs the train ever moved," parliamentary officials reported Won as telling the committee.
Won also said Kim hadn't been seen in public since Friday. He declined to comment on speculation that Kim died at his official residence in Pyongyang, saying the information hasn't been confirmed.
