Thousands of mourning North Koreans turned out for the memorial to say farewell to their long time leader Kim Jong-ll Wednesday morning.

The three hour procession was led by Kim Jong-Un, who walked beside his father’s coffin as they traveled through the Kumsusan Memorial Palace in Pyongyang, where long dead North Korean leader Kim Il-sung is entombed.
