Death of Dear Leader
North Korean State Television has announced the death of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il at the age of 69. The strange, reclusive dictator was the son of former North Korean leader Kim Il Sung, and was reported to be suffering from diabetes and heart problems. His son Kim Jong Un is expected to succeed him in what has become a Stalinist monarchy.
