The public backing for North Korea's 'supreme leader' Kim Jong-un at his father's memorial provides a strong signal that officials have unified around him in the wake of Kim Jong-il's death.
China appears to be distancing itself from North Korea and warming up to the idea of Korean reunification, according to WikiLeaks.
The North Korean leader may be using look-alikes to hide his poor health. One analyst says that when President Clinton visited in August, he met with an actor, not Kim Jong-il.
'Dear Leader' Kim Jong Il has reportedly tapped his youngest son as his successor.
