Kim Jong-un, the "great successor". likely to be advised by family members who are rapidly increasing in rank.

    The power handover is well under way in North Korea after the longtime leader, Kim Jong-il, passed away on December 17.

    Kim Jong-un, the son of the late leader, has already been named "the great successor", and it appears that other family members, including his uncle and aunt, will become some of his close advisers.
