    0

    SEOUL: North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un paid respects to his grandfather Kim Il-Sung as the country marked the birthday on Tuesday of its late founder with renewed calls for loyalty to the ruling Kim dynasty. At the stroke of midnight, Kim Jong-Un, accompanied by top military leaders, visited the Kumsusan Palace of the Sun in Pyongyang—the mausoleum holding the embalmed body of his grandfather, the North’s official KCNA news agency said. The similarly preserved body of Kim’s father, Kim Jong-Il, whom he succeeded as leader in December 2011, is housed in the same building. “Kim Jong-Un, together with other visitors, paid homage to Kim Il-Sung in the humblest reverence for him,” KCNA reported.
