North Korean leader Kim Jong-un’s brother has been assassinated in Malaysia.
Kim Jong-nam (very original) was killed at the Kuala Lumpur airport earlier this morning by two female assassins.
Reports indicate that as he was standing in line one of them grabbed his neck from behind while the other plunged a syringe under his clothes hitting him with a poisoned needle. The two women then got in a taxi and escaped the area.
Kim Jong Nam felt dizzy and asked for help. He was taken to an airport clinic and died in the ambulance on the way to hospital.
Kim Jong Nam was born from his father’s non-marital relationship with Sung Hae-rim, a South Korean-born actress who died in Moscow but he was for a long time considered to be the heir apparent up till 2001.
Dear leader’s half-brother came under scrutiny in 2001 when he was arrested trying to enter Japan with a fake passport to (and I kid you not) go to the Tokyo Disneyland.
He survived an assassination attempt in, 2011 and went into hiding in Malaysia after the execution in December 2013 of his uncle, Jang Sung-thaek, the once-powerful uncle of the current leader.
