N. Korean media signal 'momentous announcement'
SEOUL, Sept. 28 (Yonhap) -- North Korea's central television station said it will make a "momentous announcement" at 2:00 p.m. Tuesday as the country apparently began its biggest political gathering in three decades.

The announcement may be related to the series of promotions North Korean leader Kim Jong-il has approved, including the appointment of his third son, Jong-un, as a general. The move appeared to confirm outside speculation that the son is being groomed as successor to his ailing father.
