" North Korea has bid a final farewell to the man it called its Dear Leader. For three hours, Kim Jong-ils funeral cortege headed through the snowy streets of Pyongyang, watched by tens of thousands of civilians and soldiers. No world leaders were in attendance for the huge procession. However, Kims successor and third son Kim Jong-un accompanied the hearse, as did endless scenes of unrestrained grieving. Kim Jong-il died aged 69 of a heart attack on December 17, according to state media."
