Chilling CCTV footage shows killing of N. Korean leader’s brother
SEOUL, South Korea – Chilling new security footage emerged Monday purportedly showing the assassination of the North Korean leader’s half-brother at a Malaysian airport.
South Korean officials, meanwhile, squarely put the blame for the Feb. 13 attack on Pyongyang, calling it an “act of terrorism.”
The grainy and often blurry video shows a woman in a white shirt and a bobbed hair cut approaching Kim Jong Nam from behind and holding something over his mouth for a few seconds. She and another woman then calmly walk away in different directions.
Kim Jong Nam is seen apparently asking for help from airport workers, gesturing at his eyes with both hands. They accompany him to the airport clinic.
The authenticity of the closed-circuit TV footage, which was posted on YouTube, could not be confirmed. But the sequence of events appeared to be largely in line with reports that Kim Jong Nam was poisoned while waiting for a flight to Macau.
Officials have said he died while being transported to a hospital, although the cause of death has not been confirmed pending autopsy results.
