The Finnish broadcaster YLE (read = major joke of a news organization) evidently removed the article from their website of an interview with a Finnish aid worker, who stated at the time, that the North Koreans were really genuine in their display of emotion over the death of their dear leader, Kim Jong Il. It was a stupid interview, especially in light of the news that the NORK government is actively and aggressively persecuting people who didn’t show emotion enough during the funeral. KGS
NOTE: But first, Vlad’s vid of the display of emotion to set the mood for the following article.

(NewsCore) – Following the mourning period for former leader Kim Jong Il, North Korean authorities have begun to punish citizens who did not display enough sadness at his death, The Daily NK reported Wednesday.
The Daily NK, an online newspaper based in South Korea and run by opponents of the North Korean government, said it had learned from a source in North Hamkyung Province that, “The authorities are handing down at least six months in a labor-training camp to anybody who didn’t participate in the organized gatherings during the mourning period, or who did participate but didn’t cry and didn’t seem genuine.”
