Kim Jong -nam, the half-brother of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, has been killed at an airport in Malaysia by "poison needle-wielding" North Korean agents, according to South Korean media.
Yonhap news said Kim Jong-nam was killed on Monday Morning in Kuala Lumpur. Quoting government sources, other media reports claim Mr Kim died after being jabbed by a poisoned needle by two women in the city's airport.
The women are believed to be North Korean agents but have so far been able to evade a police hunt.
Police in Malaysia told Reuters that an unidentified North Korean man had died en route to hospital from Kuala Lumpur airport on Monday.
