Ri Pyong-chol (3rd row, in circle), vice chairman of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party, is seen on the third row in an indication that he might have been removed from the Presidium at its meeting late last month. The mausoleum enshrines the mummified bodies of Kim Il-sung and Kim Jong-il, the current leader's father. (For Use Only in the Republic of Korea. No Redistribution) (Yonhap) (END)
