North Korea marked the 25th anniversary of the death of its founding father Kim Il Sung on Monday, with leader Kim Jong Un visiting the mausoleum at the Kumsusan Palace of the Sun in Pyongyang where the embalmed bodies of his grandfather Kim Il Sung and his father Kim Jong Il lie.

Meanwhile, North Korean citizens and soldiers flocked to the capital's Mansu Hill to pay their respects at the foot of giant statues of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il.
