Though it is usually a 10-day mourning period, this year, the extra day came as 2021 marked the 10th anniversary of Mr Jong-Il’s death.

On Friday, Mr Jong-un marked the anniversary with a memorial service attended by thousands. North Koreans then fell silent and bowed in respect for Mr Jong Il as a siren blared for three minutes.

Cars, trains and ships blew their horns, the Hermit Kingdom’s flags were lowered to half-staff, and people flocked to Pyongyang’s Mansu Hill to lay flowers and bow before giant statues of Kim Jong Il and his father, Kim Il Sung, who ruled for 46 years.
