The 69-year-old leader of the communist nation of North Korea is now dead according to many headlines including the BBC which reports that he died on a train while outside the capital.
This story is fresh and still developing. The many news sources that I have checked refer a lot to the stroke he had back in 2008, and although it is known that he died on a train the reason for his death is not yet verified.
According to CNN:
“Kim, 69, died at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, state TV said.
A broadcaster reported that Kim died due to “overwork” after “dedicating his life to the people.”
South Korean news agency Yonhap — which based its reporting on its monitoring off North Korean state television — said that Kim had died during a train trip.”
What does this mean for North Korea? Could this finally be the end of the Korean war?
