North Korean leader Kim Jong-il apparently visited Hwanghae Province just before both the sinking of the South Korean Navy corvette Cheonan and artillery shelling of Yeonpyeong Island, while attending musical performances following both attacks, according to government intelligence. Hwanghae Province is the region in North Korea that is closest to the sites of the attacks. In March this year, Kim conducted one of his on-the-spot guidance tours at a cooperative farm in Sariwon, North Hwanghae Province around two weeks before the March 26 attack that sank the Cheonan. On March 27, Kim attended a performance by the North Korean national symphony orchestra. On April 3, Kim attended a performance by the Mansudae Art Troupe. The North Korean leader's itinerary was similar around the time of the artillery attack on Yeonpyeong Island on Nov. 23.
