In the wake of the death of the Kim Jong Il, citizens mourn the loss of their leader. While most of the rest of the world sees this as a chance for change in the oppressed country, his followers obviously don't see it that way.

North Korea and its policies have been news for decades across the world. The country has kept the US and other countries around the world on it's toes as it developed nuclear weapons against the will of the UN and then proceeded to test those very weapons. They launched test missiles, some that could reach United States soil.

Regardless of what the rest of the world thinks of Kim Jong Il's death, the citizens of North Korea are devastated and showing it in streets and squares across the country.
