Boats and Trains on Show at Kumsusan

2012-12-20 16:37 |

  • ▲ A train and yacht supposedly used by Kim Jong Il have gone on display at Kumsusan Palace of the Sun in Pyongyang, the mausoleum where the embalmed Kim and father Kim Il Sung are on public display. According to information displayed with the yacht, Kim used it from the date of its construction in 1978 until 2011; however, there are doubts whether it was really used by Kim, or is a smaller, domestically produced vessel on show in order to promote him as a man of the people (©Yonhap)
