Kim Jong-un's Half-Brother Assassinated In Malaysia

Kim Jong-nam, the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, has been assassinated in Malaysia. South Korea's all-news channel was killed at Kuala Lumpur airport after being attacked by two women with poisoned needles. The Independent reports the women, believed to be North Korean agents, escaped in a taxi and are still on the run.

The New York Times reports the killing comes during a time of turmoil in North Korea's leadership. The chief of the country's secret police was recently dismissed on corruption charges.

The New York Times reports Kim Jong-nam is the eldest son of former leader Kim Jong-Il and was once considered heir to the empire, but fell out of favor when he was caught trying to take his son to Disneyland in Japan using a fake passport.

He survived an assassination attempt in Macau in 2011.

Bloomberg reports a South Korean lawmaker says it appeared as if Kim Jong-un was behind the murder.
