South Korean ex-first lady ends visit to DPRK

Lee Hee-ho, widow of late South Korean President Kim Dae-jung, left Pyongyang on Saturday after a four-day visit to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.

During her stay, the 93-year-old ex-first lady visited a children’s hospital, a maternity home and an orphanage in Pyongyang.

There has been no report on whether DPRK leaders met with the former South Korean first lady.

The trip was Lee’s third to the DPRK. She last visited Pyongyang in December 2011 to attend the funeral of late top DPRK leader Kim Jong Il, father of current leader Kim Jong Un.
