North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was assassinated by four people at Kuala Lumpur International Airport using a fast-acting poison last week (on Feb 13th 2017). The suspects include a North Korean man, a Vietnamese woman and an Indonesian woman.
South Korean and U.S. officials suspect North Korean government to be behind this operation, as the North Korean diplomats present in Kuala Lumpur sought to prevent an autopsy on the 46-year old Kim Jong Un’s body and demanded it be handed over.
Kim Jong Nam, the eldest son of the late North Korean leader Kim Jong II, had spoken out publicly against his family’s dynastic control of isolated, nuclear-armed North Korea. In fact, the young, unpredictable North Korean leader had issued a “standing order” for his elder half-brother’s assassination, and that there had been a failed attempt in 2012.
The police are of the notion that two women carried out the attack by thrusting a cloth seeped in some chemical into the face of Kim Jong Nam when he was in the departure lounge of the airport.
