Who will control North Korea now - level 3, A11

21-12-2011 23:00

The North Korean leader Kim Jong-ill died last Saturday. He led the country for 17 years after the death of his father who was the first leader of North Korea. The new successor will probably be his son but he is just 27 years old and has only a little experience.

Experts don’t believe that his son can control the country which has economic problems. They expect some fighting for political power with the army trying to gain more control.
