North Korea mystery deepens after Kim Jung Un a no show to ceremony

(CNN) – The hermit kingdom North Korea has supplied the world with hilarity over the years, but it is downright frightening to think that right now a rogue nation that is holding American prisoners and tested nuclear weapons might not have anyone calling the shots.

Leader Kim Jong Un was a no show Friday, at a national holiday ceremony marking the creation of the country's ruling party, adding to the speculation that either his health, or his grip on power, is in decline.
