    Hi all, I am one of the reporters who worked on this video.

    With so many rumors circulating about Kim Jong-un, we didn't want to add more speculation. Instead, we wanted to explore what North Korea experts and observers are doing to keep track of developments in this secretive country.

    Direct access for independent observers such as journalists is highly restricted in North Korea. So what can be done? First, there are satellite images to track motorcades, trains, planes, or ships. This technology also allows us to look at activity at the residences of Kim Jong-un.

    Further, experts also look at state broadcasts for new visuals of Kim Jong-un, and keep an eye on unusual flight or military activities.

    None of these tools provide a magic bullet to figure out exactly what's going on in real time. As one of the experts told me, it's important to rely on multiple sources and to not jump to conclusions.

    If you are interested to see more about how we and others use new technologies and traditional reporting to conduct investigations of closed countries such as North Korea, check out these stories:

    He died inside Korean Pizza Hut after stuffing 10 pan pizzas into his fat yellow twinkie face. He fell facedown in front of the cash register, puked, and choked on his own vomit. Then a crane had to be brought in to lift up his obese corpse

    We should have never turned a blind eye to China supplying Kim Jung Un with Nuclear weapons assistance. This virus is only the last straw to how we need to deal with China, as the rest of the world moves forward without trading with communists.
