Pyongyang, November 24 (KCNA) -- One April day in Juche 87 (1998) General Secretary Kim Jong Il watched an apparatus for carving picture on stone developed in the country.

After watching it, he said it would be good to carve pictures on gravestones of fallen heroes and other martyrs.

After stone pictures were attached to the gravestones in the Patriotic Martyrs Cemetery, he visited it on September 19 that year and told officials that the lifelike stone pictures changed the appearance of the cemetery.

He then said the stone pictures were another expression of the Workers' Party of Korea's trust in and love for the martyrs and their families.
