NKorea celebrates founder's birthday

PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) - Residents in Pyongyang are spilling into the streets today to celebrate a major national holiday - the birthday of their first leader Kim Il Sung.

There's no sense of panic in the North Korean capital, despite tensions on the peninsula and the North's recent threats of war.

On Sunday, North Korea rejected the South's proposal to resolve tensions through dialogue.
