ABSTRACT
The article reports that North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il, accompanied by his son and heir-apparent Kim Jong-Un, made a surprise visit to the People's Army Unit No. 985, after he heard about the bloody killing of his colleague dictator Moammar Gaddafi in Libya. According to Chung Young-Tae, a senior research at the state-run Korea Institute for National Unification (KINU) in Seoul, South Korea, Kim's visit was aimed at checking its readiness to cope with any possible Libya-like public protests.
