Follow Up of the Day: A North Korean state television presenter, clad all in black, tearfully announces the death of “Dear Leader” Kim Jong-il as a result of an “advanced acute myocardial infarction” brought on by “a great mental and physical strain.”

The official mourning period will last through December 29th. His funeral ceremony has been scheduled for December 28th. No foreign delegations will be allowed to attend.
His son, Kim Jong-un, was declared the new leader of North Korea. According to a bio in The Daily Telegraph, experts expect the “young general” to follow in his father’s “militaristic path,” particularly in area of nuclear arms development.
The White House released a short statement saying it was monitoring reports of Kim Jong-il’s death closely, and remains “in close touch with our allies in South Korea and Japan.”
