Kim Jong-nam, the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jon-un, was killed in Kuala-Lumpur airport on Monday morning; Reuters reported that with reference to a source in the South Korean government.

‘South Korea's TV Chosun, a cable television network, said that Kim was poisoned at Kuala Lumpur airport by two women believed to be North Korean operatives, who were at large, citing multiple South Korean government sources,’ Reuters says.

The 45-year-old Kim Jong-nam died on the way from the airport.

Kim Jong Nam was believed to be close to his uncle, Jang Song Thaek, who was North Korea's second most powerful man before being executed on Kim Jong-un's orders in 2013. The elder son of Kim Il-sung, he fled the country after getting on the wrong side of his father. Kim Hong Nam, considered a moderate opposition figure, has resided in China since 2001 and never returned to motherland.
