The body of North Korea's leader is lying in state in an open glass coffin so that mourners can pay their last respects. His personal armored railway wagon and official Mercedes are on display nearby. The youngest son and successor of the deceased leader -- Kim Jung-un -- paid his last respects to his father while being accompanied by the country's top civil and military officials. According to official sources, Kim Jong-il died on the morning of December 17 of fatigue and overwork. Reportedly he had been battling heart disease since allegedly suffering a stroke in 2008.
