Bangkok - North Korean leader Kim Jong Un visited a museum featuring alleged atrocities committed by US forces during the Korean War, a news report said on Thursday.

Kim went to the newly rebuilt Sinchon Museum ahead of the 62nd anniversary of the signing of the armistice that ended the war, Yonhap News Agency reported, citing official North Korean media.

The alleged crimes committed by US forces during the 1950-53 Korean War, including the reported murder of some 35 000 North Koreans, are illustrated by relics and other memorabilia in the museum.

During his visit, Kim reportedly ordered the museum to intensify its anti-American sentiments, saying the US should "pay for the bloodshed of Koreans".

Kim expressed a desire for North Korea to "take revenge upon the enemy" for its "monstrous atrocities", the report said.

It was unclear when Kim's visit to the museum took place.
