Rumblings in North Korea ?

The BBC is reporting today that portraits of North Korea's "Dear Leader" Kim Jong-Il, have been removed from some public buildings in North Korea's capitol of Pyongyang. Apparently, one BBC source is the Russian news agency Itar-TASS, which is citing an "unnamed diplomat." Unnamed Diplomat says that there is a "secret edict" to remove pictures of Mr. Kim.
The BBC says that Agence France-Presse appears to confirm the story, noting that the "Grand People's Cultural Palace" pictures of the "Dear Leader" are missing.
North Korea is one of the most secretive places on earth, not to mention wacko, so this definitely bears some watching.
