What's going on with Kim Jong Un and his daughter?

We think she's 10 years old and we think we know her name, but those details are only known because of the former basketball player Dennis Rodman after he spoke to a newspaper a decade ago revealing the identity of the North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's youngest daughter.

She has now been seen in public in North Korea at military events and parades, but why has Kim Jong Un decided to bring her out now?

On the Sky News Daily, host Niall Paterson explores what it means for the secretive North Korean leader to reveal his daughter in public.

Niall is joined by Jean H Lee, who set up the first Associated Press bureau in the country, and James Fretwell, an analyst at the North Korean news monitoring service NK News.
