China websites block searches for ‘Fatty Kim the Third’

Chinese websites have again blocked searches for "Fatty Kim the Third", as many Chinese mockingly call North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, with China's foreign ministry saying it did not approve of ridiculing foreign leaders.

Kim is unpopular in China because of his country's repeated nuclear and missile tests.
