A ceremony for fallen leader Kim Jong-Il began recently at the Kumsusan Memorial Palace and will continue as Kim's body travels in a hearse through the streets of Pyongyang on Wednesday. According to Russia's Itar-Tass, a farewell ceremony will take place on Thursday, December 29, at noon local time. "On Thursday, a national memorial service will feature an artillery salute to be followed by a three-minute silence at noon and trains and ships sounding their horns in unison," adds the Guardian. Invitations to all foreign delegations got lost in the mail.
