Pyongyang, January 19 (KCNA) -- A natural wonder happened in Germany, too, when the whole world was in great sorrow over the demise of leader
Kim Jong Il.
At around 3:00 PM on Dec. 20, the day after the news of the passing of the leader was released, a grate titmouse settled before the entrance of the DPRK embassy in Germany and stayed there, pecking at the glass.
There were visits of an endless crowd of people to the mourning place, but the bird was staring at it for an hour before flying away.
Meanwhile, a prunus mume around the embassy premise had been in full bloom in the whole mourning period despite chilly weather.
Witnesses said: It was a rare phenomenon which was not observed before. It seemed that upon hearing the sad news of the demise of the outstanding great man the bird flew to the mourning station to express condolences and flew away after standing vigil. The prunus mume came into bloom in such cold winter day in token of mourning his demise. -0-
