North Korean leader Kim Jong Il, died today at the age of 69. The cause of his death is still unknown but media speculates that he died due to complications of diabetes and heart disease. In 2008, he had a stroke but appeared still vigorous in photos and videos.
During his 17-year rule, North Korea suffered three-year famine which caused the lives of more than 2 million. North Korea is known to be a hermit country, so secretive, that only a few were allowed to have telephone lines, computer and television wherein there is only one channel to watch... everything is a propaganda.
Kim Jong Un, his third son, shall takeover his position.
