This image, released on Nov. 5, 2008, claims to show Kim with a North Korean military unit. The BBC and the U.K.'s Times newspaper have raised questions about the legitimacy of this image.

The line stops at the two soldiers standing to Kim's left and right, suggesting that he was digitally inserted into the photo.
