Half-brother of Kim Jong Un Killed in Malaysia
South Korean media say the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has been killed in Malaysia.
A South Korean government official said that Kim Jong Nam was killed Monday, the Yonhap news agency reported.
The official did not provide additional information.
Two unidentified female agents reportedly used poisoned needles to kill Kim at Kuala Lumpur International Airport. The two then fled the area in a taxi. The women are believed to have been working for North Korea.
South Korea's National Intelligence Service neither confirmed nor denied the story.
Kim Jong Nam spent large amounts of time outside North Korea. He also had voiced disapproval of his family's control of the country.
He and his younger brother, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, are both sons of former North Korean leader Kim Jong Il. However, they had different mothers. The older brother was once considered to be the heir of his father and was expected to lead the country.
However, Kim Jong Nam fell from favor with his father in 2001. That year, he attempted to enter Japan with a false passport, reportedly to visit Tokyo Disneyland.
Since that time, he has lived mainly in the Chinese territory of Macau.
Kim Jong Nam was believed to be close to his uncle, Joang Song Thaek. Joang was considered the second most powerful man in North Korea, but he was executed in 2013. Kim Jong Un reportedly ordered his execution.
In previous years, Kim Jong Nam expressed disinterest in leading North Korea. "Personally, I am against third-generation succession," he told Japan's Asahi TV in 2010.
Kim Jong Il died in December 2011, when Kim Jong Un took power.
"I hope my younger brother will do his best for the sake of North Koreans' prosperous lives," he reportedly said.

据韩国媒体报道，朝鲜领导人金正恩（Kim Jong Un）的同父异母兄长在马来西亚遭到暗杀 。
据韩联社报道，韩国政府官员称，金正男（Kim Jong Nam）于周一遇害 。
据悉，金正男在吉隆坡国际机场被两位身份不明的女性用毒针行刺身亡 。随后，两名凶手搭乘出租车逃亡 。两名行凶女性被指是朝鲜所派的特工 。
金正男常年移居海外 。他还公开反对朝鲜的家族统治体制 。
金正男与金正恩同为朝鲜前领导人金正日（Kim Jong Il）之子 。不过，两人并非一母所生 。金正男曾被视为“王储”并有望统治整个国家 。
然而2001年，金正男却突然失宠 。报道称，那一年，金正男试图持假护照前往东京的迪士尼乐园游玩 。
有消息称，金正男与姑父张成泽（Joang Song Thaek）关系密切 。张成泽被视为朝鲜的二号人物，但是却在2013年遭到处决 。据说，处决命令是由金正恩亲自下达的 。
前些年，金正男并未流露出对朝鲜政权的欲望 。2010年，金正男在接受日本朝日电视台采访时称：“我个人反对三代世袭 。”
