Korean Central Television, the official government-run television portal of the secretive North Korean government, released these rare childhood pictures of the country's leader Kim Jong-Un. The images were unveiled at a concert for the country's air force personnel, who applauded as the images were flashed on a giant screen.

One image shows Kim Jong-Un, who is now 31 years old, as a large-cheeked boy dressed in child-sized military apparel and saluting for the cameras. Another photograph shows him as an older boy sitting in the cockpit of an airplane. Kim Jong-Un's face is not visible in the second photo.

The images have caused considerable stir, as there are very few photographs of Kim Jong-Un that show him prior to becoming the leader of North Korea following the death of his father Kim Jong-Il.
