North Korea has called on the country to defend the new leader, Kim Jong-un, to the death, in a New Year message.

The army, ruling party and people should be prepared to act as “human shields” for the son and successor of Kim Jong-il, the message released by state media said.

It added that the nation must launch an “all-out drive” to achieve prosperity.

Kim Jong-il, who had ruled since 1994, died on 17 December.

His son, Kim Jong-un, took the reins after his death and has in recent days quickly consolidated his power in the country.
