Half-brother of dictator Kim Jong Un is assassinated

Kim Jong Nam was born to a woman who was forced by Kim Jong Il to leave her husband and live with the dictator, according to Cheong Seong-chang, a North Korea analyst at Sejong Institute near Seoul.
Kim Jong-nam had lived overseas for years after apparently falling out of favor with his father for attempting to enter Japan on a fake passport in 2001. He told officials the family wanted to visit Tokyo Disneyland.
South Korean intelligence officials have accused Kim Jong-Un of ordering two female assassins to poison his half-brother, as reported by the Wall Street Journal. "So far, the cause of death has not been revealed, so it would be irresponsible to put forward any hypotheses". The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the case involves sensitive diplomacy.
Sources familiar with the stand-off said that Malaysian authorities however stood their ground and refused to accede to the request.
The South Korean Unification Ministry said today it recognized that the North Korean man who died in Malaysia's capital was "certainly Kim Jong Nam". It was not immediately clear whether the passport was genuine. She was nabbed when she returned to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 to catch a flight to Vietnam on Wednesday.

Kim Jong-Un took over as North Korean leader when his father died in December 2011.
"If you look at what Kim Jong Un has been doing, he has been pretty ruthlessly trying to eliminate his opposition", he said.

A taxi driver, who declined to be named, said he was aware of the news but did not know of the taxi driver who was arrested. One of them said Kim Jong-nam also had a wife and son in Beijing.
After growing up in Western countries, Kim has been living outside North Korea for decades.
Kim Jong Nam and Kim Jong Un have the same father, late dictator Kim Jong Il, but different mothers.
He is believed to have been born on May 10 1971, although birthdays are always unclear for senior North Koreans, Mr Gause said. Jang, as the vice chairman of the power National Defense Commission, had been a virtual "number two" to Kim and was close to China, North Korea's longtime benefactor.
This would be the most high-profile death at the hands of the North Korean leadership since Kim Jong-un's uncle, Chang Song-thaek, was executed in 2013.
