North Korean leader's half-brother Kim Jong-nam poisoned with chemical spray: Reports
Feb.15, Seoul: South Korea's spy agency said on Wednesday that Kim Jong-nam, the estranged half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, was poisoned by two suspected North Korean female agents, according to MPs briefed by the intelligence agency.
The agency also said North Korea had long prepared for the murder of Kim Jong-nam, the MPs said, although they did not explain how the agency knows that.
Kim was killed at an airport in Malaysia's Kuala Lumpur on his way to the Chinese territory of Macau, where he had been living, the MPs said, adding that he had been given China's protection, reports said.
According to police reports, the two female agents fled in a taxi and were being sought by Malaysian police.
Meanwhile, police were checking surveillance tapes for more clues over his death, a senior official said.
An autopsy will also be performed on the body of Kim Jong-nam on Wednesday, police said.
