List of "Phenomenon" associated with Kim Jong-Il Death
Kim, who died in December 2011 aged 69 years after 17 years running the world's most reclusive state, was reputed to be able to control the weather, as well as to have scored a miraculous 38 under par round of golf.
* "At around 17:30 on December 19, 2011, hundreds of magpies appeared from nowhere and hovered over a statue of President Kim Il Sung on Changdok School campus in Mangyongdae District, clattering as if they were telling him the sad news," state news agency KCNA reported on Monday.
* KCNA reported last week that a family of bears who usually hibernate through the fierce Korean winter had been seen lamenting Kim Jong-il's death."The bears, believed to be a mother and cubs, were staying on the road, crying woefully," it said.
* The day that Kim Jong Il died, the peak of North Korea's holiest mountain glowed red and a sheet of ice cracked on Heaven Lake, shaking the area with an unusually loud noise.
* In another "natural wonder" associated with Kim Jong Il's death, a Manchurian crane flew around a statue of Kim Il Sung three times before eventually flying off, "with its head drooped," in the direction of Pyongyang.
Observing this, the director of the Management Office for the Hamhung Revolutionary Site, and others said in union that even the crane seemed to mourn the demise of Kim Jong Il born of heaven after flying down there at dead of cold night, unable to forget him," it said.
Even nature is mourning, the state-run Korean Central News Agency reported.
* A snowstorm hit as Mr Kim died and ice on the volcanic Chon lake near his reported birthplace at Mount Paektu cracked, it said.
* Following the storm's sudden end at dawn on Tuesday, a message carved in rock - "Mount Paektu, holy mountain of revolution. Kim Jong-il" - glowed brightly, it said. It remained there until sunset.
* On the same say, a Manchurian crane also apparently adopted a posture of grief at a statue of the late leader's father in the northern city of Hamhung.
"Even the crane seemed to mourn the demise of Kim Jong-il, born of Heaven, after flying down there at dead of cold night, unable to forget him," KCNA reported officials as saying.
Natural Wonders Observed
Pyongyang, December 21 2011(KCNA) -- Peculiar natural wonders were observed on Mt. Paektu, Jong Il Peak and Tonghung Hill in Hamhung City where the statue of President Kim Il Sung is standing at a time when all Korean people are mourning the demise of leader Kim Jong Il in bitterest sorrow.

Forced labor for N. Korea 'mourners'
Thursday, January 12, 2012
Now they’ll be sorry: North Korea may sentence people who didn't adequately mourn the late Kim Jong Il to six months of hard labor, a South Korean news site says.
* North Koreans who didn't attend collective mourning sessions for the Dear Leader — or who attended but seemed insincere — are being subjected to at least six months in forced labor camps, an unnamed source from North Hamkyung Province told DailyNK.com on Wednesday.
The Seoul-based website is run by critics of the North Korean government and typically files reports based on anonymous sources within the tightly controlled north.
