North Korean soldiers dance in the plazas of Pyongyang on Wednesday, July 18, 2012, after North Korea announced that leader Kim Jong Un was granted the title of marshal, a move that cements his status at the top of the authoritarian nation’s military as he makes key changes to the 1.2 million-man force. The decision to award the top title to Kim, who already serves as supreme commander of the Korean People’s Army, was made Tuesday by the nation’s military, government and political leadership, state media said in a special bulletin.
