A lurid tale of a North Korean family feud

A lurid tale of a North Korean family feud

Malaysian police have detained a woman holding Vietnamese travel papers in relation to the killing.

The brother is the eldest son of the late North Korean leader Kim Jong Il, who had spent many years overseas without holding any official position.

Those women are at large, according to the outlet, which cited multiple South Korean government sources.

The 33-year-old Jong Un was reportedly infuriated - and may have been behind two botched assassinations of Jong Nam in 2010 and 2011.

Malaysian police say they are searching for several other suspects. But it's widely believed Kim Jong-Un saw his older half-brother as a threat to the regime. Kim Jong Nam, as the eldest son in the family, had always been expected to rule North Korea after Kim Jong Il's death, backed by the Communist Party seniors including Jang Sung Taek.

In May 2001, Kim Jong Nam was nabbed at Tokyo's Narita airport and held for using a false Dominican Republic passport.

Kim, who died on the way to a hospital, told medical workers that he had been attacked with a chemical spray, the official said.

"Because I was educated in the West, I was able to enjoy freedom from early age and I still love being free", he said in notes to a Japanese journalist, Yoji Gomi, who wrote a book on Kim Jong Nam in 2012.

South Korean Acting President Hwang Kyo-ahn, as well as the National Security Council (NSC), are known to have been informed of Kim's alleged assassination, but South Korea's Blue House was unable to immediately give comment on the issue when contacted by NK News around 9PM KST.

Jones has said he is not bothered either way, although under Six Nations rules, both teams have to agree for it to be closed. One of England's stars was centre Owen Farrell, who added: "In glimpses we showed what we can do".

In October 2012 South Korean prosecutors said a North Korean detained as a spy had admitted involvement in a plot to stage a hit-and-run vehicle accident in China in 2010 targeting Jong Nam.

Kim Jong Nam also criticized North Korea's dynastic succession and that he had no interest in running the country, which remains in the iron grip of his half-brother.

Confusion had originally arisen in part after the police said the deceased was traveling with a North Korean passport bearing the name Kim Chol, and with a date of birth different to that of Kim Jong Nam.

"It's just speculation that DPRK is behind Kim Jong Nam's death".

Kim had no official title and lived outside North Korea.

Seoul has said North Korea also executed a vice premier for education a year ago for unspecified anti-revolutionary and factional acts, and a defence minister in 2015 for complaining and sleeping during a meeting. He died in the ambulance on his way to Putrajaya Hospital, according to Fadzil. His mother was Song Hye Rim, a North Korean actress who was initially Kim Jong Il's secret mistress. It's unclear what positon he has in the North Korean government.

Recently, South Korea had tried to negotiate Mr Kim's defection but failed, The Korea Herald reported.

Malaysian authorities rebuffed North Korean officials efforts to stop an autopsy being carried out on Kim Jong Nam, three Malaysian government sources familiar with the stand-off told Reuters.
