Kim Jong-Un is North Korea’s dictator. He rules with an iron fist, eliminating anyone, including relatives, who oppose him. His half-brother Kim Jong-Nam was assassinated by a woman at an airport in Malaysia. Nam was considered by many to the the heir apparent to take over if anything happened to Un. The question now is who is behind the assassination of Nam?
The half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, Kim Jong-nam, has been killed in an attack in the Malaysian capital, Kuala Lumpur.
Malaysian police say he was waiting at the airport for a flight to Macau on Monday when a woman covered his face with a cloth which burnt his eyes.
He was using a passport in a different name at the time.
The late Kim Jong-il’s eldest son is thought to have fled North Korea after being passed over for the leadership.
