Just when things got weird in North Korea a 9 foot soldier appears

This handout picture taken by North Korea's official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) on December 28, 2011 shows the funeral procession for North Korea's late leader Kim Jong-Il arriving at the square of the Kumsusan Memorial Palace in Pyongyang.
Among the oddities that have emerged from North Korea Thursday is a giant soldier in the crowd watching Kim Jong-il’s funeral procession.
Out of place as he seems, the soldier can be spotted towering over his fellow mourners from a slightly different angle in a Kyodo photo (below).

Earlier Thursday, editors at the New York Times spotted a group of journalists that had been erased from another funeral scene (below). Immediately after, AFP/Getty Images issued the “photo-kill” advisory to the editors, asking for the photo to be removed.
The 9-foot-tall solider was pointed out on online community Reddit, and has since gone viral on other social media networks.
