All the people of the DPRK missed and revered Chairman Kim Jong Il very much on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of his demise.
The national flag was hung at half-mast at all units, including institutions and industrial establishments at all levels, farms, fishing villages and schools in Pyongyang and other local provinces, and at far-off guard posts.
An endless stream of people with profound respect for the Chairman who devoted all his life to the country and the people, socialism and global independence, visited the statues of the great leaders Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il on Mansu Hill in the capital city of Pyongyang, and their statues and smiling portraits, towers to their immortality, revolutionary battle sites, revolutionary sites and monuments to their field guidance built across the country.
At noon on December 17, the greatest memorial day of the nation, sirens blared simultaneously across the country.
Vehicles and locomotives stopped to blow horns and the sound of sirens was heard in all cities, villages, worksites and other units.
All the Party members and other people and service personnel of the People’s Army simultaneously paid three minutes’ silent tribute towards the Kumsusan Palace of the Sun, the sacred temple of Juche where the Chairman lies in state.
