Picture of the Day: North Korean Hero Shown To Be A General Officer

Choe Chun-sik (circled), the chief of North Korea’s Second Academy of Natural Sciences, is seen in military outfit in this screen shot from the North’s Korean Central TV Broadcasting Station on Sept. 11, 2013. Choe earned the title of a national hero in December last year for his contribution to the country’s successful rocket launch the same month. The launch was regarded as a missile test by the international community. This was the first time for him to be seen in military uniform, and the insignia shows the rank of lieutenant general, equivalent of major general. (Yonhap)
