North Korea 'Dear Leader' - mysterious Godfather Kim Jong-il died aged 69 as the World awaits and hopes for new begining following the coronation of his western educated third son Kim Jong-un.

Kim Jong-il the feared communist leader of North Korea died of a heart attack aged 69 years. His death sparked security alerts across the region especially in neighbouring South Korea, prompting America and China to issue Statements of caution and re-assurance respectively.

As thousands mourn the death of a man widely seen as father in North Korea, it was revealed that the General, their Leader lived in lavish luxury with networks of nuclear bunkers, while millions in North Korea lavished in abject poverty. Thousands if not millions, died in the 1990's following a pro-longed famine.

Kim Jong-un only appeared with his father on live television for the first time last October, clapping and saluting thousands of goose-stepping soldiers at a military parade.

The third son of Kim Jong-il, Jong-un is believed to be around 27-years-old and was educated in Switzerland.

He lived under the pseudonym of "Pak Chol" while at the International School of Berne, and pretended to be the son of a driver.

Described as shy and uncommunicative, he was only known for his sporting passion - in particular a fascination with basketball and Michael Jordan. He was also known to have been a fan of skiing.

Not much else is known about his time at school - but by late 1999 he had simply disappeared from the country, according to former classmates.

Little else was revealed about him until June 2010, when North Korean officials began circulating photographs of him, taken while he was at school.

Prior to this, only one official image of him had circulated outside North Korea, apparently taken when he was around eleven years old.

Shortly afterwards, in September of that year, he was appointed a general of the country's army - and it was then that the first official photograph of him as an adult was released.

This was followed by the television footage of him at a parade with his father a month later - the younger Kim's military 'coming out' and an effort to boost his standing in what is one of the world's largest armies.

Aside from what is known about his sporting and military pursuits, the younger Kim is also an unexpected fashion guru in his country.

His short-square haircut - dubbed the "youth" or "ambition" - is widely copied by young men in Pyongyang.
