Kim Jong-il dead

[Update: Some interesting photos and videos from Pyongyang]

I was just told by my co-workers that Kim Jong-il is dead.

The BBC is reporting that North Korean state-run television "said he had died on Saturday of physical and mental over-work."

I imagine the next few months should be interesting...

[Update: Using a proxy to try to get through to KCNA isn't working - not surprising that it would be down. And I would imagine AP had this lengthy article prepared beforehand...]

KCNA is up, just hasnt been updated since the 14th... not out of the ordinary to see delays in news posted... but still, youd think considering the circumstances...
