North Korean troops march in bizarre red hazmat suits as Kim Jong-un celebrates midnight parade.

North Korea experts say Kim, who was at a parade celebrating the nation's founding 73 years ago, has lost more weight after reports emerged that his subjects feared he was "emaciated".

"However he is doing it -- and there are theories -- he looks a lot better than he did a few months ago."

Images released overnight show Kim looking considerably skinnier as he's hugged by two adoring children and salutes men marching biohazard suits in a weird midnight parade.
