Kim Jong Il's grandson starts studies
Saturday 15 October 2011
The North Korean leader Kim Jong Il's grandson is starting classes at a private high school in Bosnia for international students.
Officials at the United World College's branch in Mostar said on Friday that Kim Han Sol, 16, came to Bosnia a month-and-a-half after classes started because he was refused a visa to Hong Kong, where he had planned to study at another branch. A school official confirmed his identity on condition of anonymity – she was not permitted to speak publicly.
He is the first North Korean student to attend any of the 13 schools of the United World College. Meri Musa, a spokeswoman, said the school selects students by their "sense of idealism, sense that they can really change the world".
