North Korean state television shows hundreds of service personnel and citizens paying homage to Kim Jong-il on the first anniversary of his death on Monday.

The pictures show mourners in Pyongyang gathered in front of statues of Kim Jong-il and North Korea's founder Kim Il-sung, and mosaics portraying the two leaders' smiling faces.

Soldiers and civilians stood for silent prayers and offered flowers to statues of current leader Kim Jong-un's father and grandfather.

A state funeral and a commemorative event capped 10 days of mourning following Kim Jong-il's death on December 17, 2011 and his son, Kim Jong-un, was hailed as the "great successor".
