In a "special broadcast" Monday from the North Korean capital, state media said Kim died of a heart ailment on a train due to a "great mental and physical strain" on Dec. 17 during a "high intensity field inspection." It said an autopsy was done on Dec. 18 and "fully confirmed" the diagnosis.
Kim is believed to have suffered a stroke in 2008, but he had appeared relatively vigorous in photos and video from recent trips to China and Russia and in numerous trips around the country carefully documented by state media.

North Korea is a country locked out of the normal world and in complete darkness. We can only hope that removal of this evil tyrant will somehow open their eyes and improve their position in life.
Like NAZI Germany and communist countries North Korea demonstrates how gullible and ignorant human beings can become in darkness and sin.
It is a warning to western nations of what becomes them if they reject God and His Word, - As indeed they are doing now!!
Romans 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; 19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
