As North Koreans are grieving the loss of their leader Kim Jong-il, the world is watching for signs of trouble.

Kim's death has sparked concerns among the US and its allies in the region due to lack of information of who really holds power in the country.

Hillary Clinton, the US secretary of state, says she hopes North Korea will follow the path of peace.
