North Korea holds state funeral for ‘dear leader’ Kim Jong-il 

North Korea’s military staged a huge funeral procession in the snowy streets of the capital, Pyongyang, for Kim Jong-il, readying a transition to his son, Kim Jong-un. What appeared to be live footage from North Korean state TV showed the procession moving slowly through the streets against a backdrop of audible mass outpouring of grief from an estimated 200,000 mourners, mostly in military uniform
