PYONGYANG, Dec. 26 (Xinhua) -- Kim Jong Un, vice chairman of the Central Military Commission of the Workers' Party of Korea, on Monday accepted condolences for his father's death from a South Korean mourners' group at the Kumsusan Memorial Palace, the official news agency KCNA reported.

The southern mourners' group, led by Lee and Hyun, arrived Monday in Pyongyang via Kaesong.
