North Korea's increasingly reclusive leader, Kim Jong Il, made a rare public appearance with his youngest son Sunday at a massive military parade billed as one of the largest in the nation.
Dignitaries from around the world, including China, Russia, Nepal, Poland, Austria and Mongolia, attended the event. Officials said 20,000 military personnel took part. They marched in lockstep as huge pieces of military hardware - including tanks and missiles - rolled along the parade route as part of celebration marking the 65th anniversary of the Workers' Party of Korea.
Thousands of military personnel erupt into applause and chants as the Kims appeared in the capital to start the parade. FULL STORY
