Kim Jong-Un’s Half-Brother Killed By Female Assassins With Poison Needles

Two female assassins murdered Kim Jong-nam, the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, at a Malaysian airport, according to a new report.

In a scene that could have been lifted from a Quentin Tarantino film, Jong-nam was walking through the airport in Kuala Lumpur on Monday morning when two women ran up to him and stuck him with “poison needles,” according to The Telegraph.

The women, who are reportedly believed to be North Korean operatives, fled the scene and are still at large.

Jong-nam, 45, was the oldest son of former North Korean dictator Kim Jong-il and on track to be the heir until he was arrested in 2001 with a fake Dominican Republic passport in Tokyo’s Narita Airport.

After the arrest, Jong-nam was estranged from his father and lived in exile in Macau, where he was known for his love of traveling to China, gambling, and dropping large amounts of cash at casinos and restaurants. Jong-nam was often pictured wearing his trademark flat cap and smiling and waving to reporters.

For years, rumors have swirled that Kim Jong-un wanted to have his half-brother killed — and they intensified after their father died in 2011.

Jong-nam was a vocal opponent of the “hereditary transfer” of power to his half-brother, who has been the supreme leader since his father’s death, according to media reports.
