North Korea has hailed late leader Kim Jong-il's son, Kim Jong-un, as "supreme leader of the party, state and army" As the majority of North Koreans stood obediently crying, Mr Kim took centre stage at the choreographed memorial service in Pyongyang’s main square a day after his father’s funeral.
Kim Yong-nam, formerly the number two leader told a million-strong crowd that their sorrow would be turned into strength “1000 times greater under the leadership of Kim Jong-un”.
Many believe that the memorial event appeared to be Kim dynasty’s official hand-over of power. A three-minute silence was held after which trains and ships all sounded their horns.
Kim Jong-ill had died of a heart attack on 17 December aged 69. He had ruled North Korea since his father’s death in 1994.
North Korea is extremely secretive and virtually the only country that is closed to the outside world. No foreign delegations have attended the events and for the outside world to enter or even report on North Korea is virtually impossible.
