Although his true birthdate has been shrouded in secrecy, he would have been 12 to 14 years old when the passport was issued. The passports have stamps that say "Embassy of Brazil in Prague". Since taking the reins of power from his ancestors, Kim Jong Un has been known to order the execution of any political rivals, including members of his own family.
Kim Jong-un travelled under the name Josef Pwag, with a birthdate of February 1, 1983.
Kim Jong-il, who died in 2011, used the pseudonym Ijong Tchoi, and a birthdate of April 4, 1940.
Reuters has only seen photocopies of the passports so was unable to discern if they had been tampered with.
