People gather at Pyongyang landmarks to mourn

Following the death of Kim Jong-il the streets of Pyongyang are quiet, but throngs of people have gathered at landmarks.

North Korea has entered an 11-day period of official mourning, with flags being flown at half-mast at all military bases, factories, businesses, farms and public buildings.

The BBC has journalists in South Korea but no-one has been allowed into North Korea.

The only independent foreign journalist who has witnessed the scenes in Pyongyang is Associated Press TV reporter Rafael Wober.
