Kim Jong Un's half-brother assassinated in KL
He lived in Pyongyang after finishing his overseas studies and was put in charge of overseeing North Korea's information technology policy. But the latest story may take the cake.
-The older half-brother of North Korea's Supreme Leader died Tuesday in a Malaysian airport under mysterious circumstances, South Korean and Malaysian news outlets reported, in what the U.S. government believes may have been a murder carried out by North Korean agents.
"Following this, the man was seen struggling for help and managed to obtain the assistance of a KLIA receptionist as his eyes suffered burns as a result of the liquid". When his condition didn't improve, he was taken in an ambulance to a hospital. South Korea's TV Chosun, a cable television network, reported that Kim had been poisoned with a needle by two women believed to be North Korean operatives.
"I think the two female spies were dispatched by North Korea", a government official told the JoongAng Ilbo newspaper, adding that "they fled in a taxi right after the crime".
"Kim Jong Nam reportedly has been Beijing's favorite, which may mean one day the Chinese Communist Party may overthrow Kim Jong Un and install Kim Jong Nam", said Lee Sung-yoon, a North Korea expert at Tufts University's Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy. "We must now pay more attention to (.Kim Jong-un) for there are no other checks and balances".
Malaysia is one of a small number of countries that still has close relations with North Korea.
Sargento recalls products due to possible listeria contamination
The company said it was recalling five additional products packaged at that same facility "out of an abundance of caution". The cheese is in plastic deli packing with UPC's starting with 215927 or 215938 followed by six digits based on weight.
Speculation quickly spread in South Korea on Tuesday that Kim Jong Un might be behind the reported death of his half brother.
In 2010, Kim Jong-nam told Japan's TV Asahi that he is "against third-generation succession", although he said he hopes Kim Jong-un will do his best to improve the lives of North Koreans and that he stands ready to help from overseas.
Sources said Kim Jong-nam, the half-brother of North Korea's leader, has been killed.
Lee said Kim Jong Un also had "a serious legitimacy problem in terms of his bloodline". The exact details are, again, murky. The text is a series of interviews between Jong Nam and a Japanese reporter, explaining the Kim family relationship.
The half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un has reportedly been assassinated in Malaysia. Authorities detained Kim Jong Nam when he tried to use a Dominican passport to enter Japan.
He was known to travel to Hong Kong, Macau, and mainland China. Previous reports of executions and purges involving people deemed to be enemies of the North Korean regime - including those emanating from South Korean intelligence - have proved unreliable.
