Kim Jong-un is known to reduce North Koreans to tears, but when a group of babies began screaming during a photo call the Dear Leader took it with good grace.
The head of the world's most secretive state was this week pictured with children being treated at the Taesongsan General Hospital in Pyongyang.
The series of images were released after the publication at the weekend of photos showing relatives crying as a North Korean official apologises for the collapse of building's in Pyongyang at the weekend - an unusual move from the secretive state.
The word of the collapse was reported Sunday morning by the North's official Korean Central News Agency, which gave no death toll but said that the accident was "serious" and upset Kim, who was reported to have said he could not sleep.
