Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on December 20, 2011

The pictures of Kim’s body wrapped in a shawl and encased in a glass tomb were broadcast as an 11-day period of national mourning began following his death from a heart attack on Saturday.

Placed in the Kumsusan Memorial Palace in Pyongyang, he is shown surrounded by red and white flowers with his head resting on a small white pillow.

Mourners in military uniforms are shown paying their respects, including his son and announced successor Kim Jong Un.

North Korea has announced that Kim’s funeral will be held on 28 December, and there were reports that Chinese president Hu Jintao will be the only foreigner in attendance.
