Kim Jong Nam, Kim Jong-un half-brother is killed by North Korean agents with VX nerve gas in Malaysia


Kim’s half-brother Kim Jong Nam was fatally poisoned with VX nerve gas in a Kuala Lumpur airport. It is believed that this was an attempt by Kim to eliminate a possible heir for the leadership of North Korea. This gave way to a deteriorating relationship between Malaysia and North Korea with North Korea issuing an order that prevented Malaysian citizens from leaving the country while Malaysia responded by canceling visa-free entry to North Koreans.
