North Korea’s KIM JONG IL DIES

It is said the North Korea dictator died of a heart attack on a train over the weekend. Kim’s death was announced Monday by state television from the North Korean capital, Pyongyang.While many of the North Korean people are mourning the lost of their leader, unfortunately, many of the South Koreans protestors are shouting victory.

South Korea, anxious about the untested, 20-something Kim Jong Un after his father’s 17-year rule, put its military on high alert against the North’s 1.2 million-strong armed forces. President Barack Obama agreed by phone with South Korean President Lee Myung-bak to closely monitor developments. (KY post)
