Kim Jong-il, North Korean leader, dies

Kim Jong-il, North Korea’s dear leader, has died aged 69, state television announced this morning.

An announcer said he died on Saturday from physical and mental over-work. It is thought that he suffered a stroke in 2008, but had apparently recovered.

A tearful anchor, dressed in black, said he had died at 8.30am while on a train trip on the way to give field guidance to workers — via redwolf.newsvine.com
