"North Korea prepared to lay longtime ruler Kim Jong Il to rest while the hermit state’s official media on Tuesday lauded his son and heir apparent as a person 'born of heaven' -- suggesting the transition to a new leadership was under way. ... Kim died Saturday of a massive heart attack brought about by overwork and stress, according to the North’s media. He was 69 -- though some experts question the official accounts of his birth date and location. The state funeral is to be held on Dec. 28." (12/19/11)
