BBC News reports that Kim Jong-un's appearance with his father at the parade marking the 65th anniversary of the ruling Workers' Party, occurred the day after a similar appearance at the Arirang Games in Pyongyang. The BBC's Michael Bristow says that the events marked the first time that both Kims appeared publicly before the world's media, which was allowed to cover both the games and the parade in a break from North Korea's usual secrecy. BBC News offers video of the parade on its website.
