North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un‘s half-brother has been declared dead, allegedly assassinated by two females with poison needles according to media reports.
Kim Jong-nam was declared dead after being allegedly assassinated in Malaysia. He was rushed to the hospital and declared dead after what South Korean media are reporting was an assassination with poison needles.
TV Chosun is reporting that two women fled in a taxi after assassinating him, using poison needles.
Kim Jong-nam is the half-brother of North Korean dictator, Kim Jong Un and the oldest son of the late North Korean leader, Kim Jong-il. He was passed over for succession by his father and has lived in semi-exile, outside of North Korea. Kim Jong Un and his brother have been estranged for many years now.
