Kim-Jong Nam Assassinated By Poisoned Needles

-UPDATE-

U.S. officials strongly believe North Korean officials are behind the assassination of Kim Jong-Nam.

-ORIGINAL-

The son of Song Hye-Rim, a South Korean-born actress who is believed to have been a mistress of former North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il, was killed in an apparent assassination outside the Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Malaysia on Monday.

Two women used poisoned needles to attack Kim Jong-Nam, according to a report.

Jong-Nam has been an advocate for change in North Korea, especially after he was banned from the country after an attempt to go to Disney World in 2010.  

In December of 2013, Jong-Nam's uncle was executed by the North Korean government for "attempting to overthrow the state by all sorts of intrigues and despicable methods."
