DPRK military and political leaders pledge loyalty during memorial

The Democratic People's Republic of Korea has marked the second anniversary of the death of Kim Jong-il with vows to unite behind his son, Kim Jong-un, and a series of events to show the world that the government has returned to business as usual despite last week's execution of Kim Jong-un's once-powerful uncle.

Kim Jong-un sat silently as a stadium full of military and party officials paid homage to his father on Tuesday. Absent was Jang Song-thaek, who was executed after being accused of corruption and allegedly trying to overthrow the government.
