North Korea is moving fast to consolidate its new leader Kim Jong-un, with senior military officials already having pledged allegiance, the South’s intelligence service believes.

It also disputed the official account of Kim Jong-il’s death, telling MPs in Seoul he could not have died en route to a visit because his train had been stationary all weekend.

Officials suggested the account could have been created to burnish his image as a Dear Leader devoted to his people.
