Kim, 66, has led communist North Korea for 14 years, under which the reclusive country has seen it anemic economy shrink, its ballistic missile arsenal swell and U.N. sanctions imposed due to its nuclear program and first atomic test two years ago.

Garments of would-be immigrants are hooked on a razor wire fence which separates Spain's North African enclave of Melilla from Morocco in Melilla October 3, 2005. Around 700 sub-Saharan migrants charged at border fences around Spain's North African enclave of Melilla on Monday, with about 200 managing to get over after the fence collapsed, officials said. It was the fourth such attempt at Spain's North African enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla since last week. Spain sent in the army to reinforce security at the outposts after five Africans were killed during an attempt to enter Ceuta last Thursday.
