North Korea remembers Kim Jong-il two years on

North Korea is marking the second anniversary of the death of leader Kim Jong-il, days after the dramatic purge of a top-level official.

Images from Pyongyang showed thousands of officials at a ceremony to commemorate Mr Kim, presided over by his son and current leader Kim Jong-un.

Meanwhile thousands of ordinary North Koreans turned out to pay their respects to their former leaders and reaffirm their loyalty to the current leader.
