North Korea today hailed Kim Jong-Il's young son, Jong-Un, as a 'great successor' at the helm of the isolated country after the leader who built an atomic arsenal and presided over a devastating famine died. Swiss and foreign media reported that the young North Korean allegedly attended a private primary school, the International School of Bern in Guemligen, then a public school in Liebefeld, near Berne.
