Kim Jong-Un and Murdered Half-Brother Kim Jong Nam - North Korea News

Kim Jong Nam, the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un who was killed in Malaysia in 2017, had been an informant for the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, the Wall Street Journal reported on Monday. The Journal cited an unnamed “person knowledgeable about the matter” for the report, and said many details of Kim Jong Nam’s relationship with the CIA remained unclear. Reuters could not independently confirm the story. The CIA declined to comment. The Journal quoted the person as saying “There was a nexus” between the CIA and Kim Jong Nam. “Several former U.S. officials said the half brother, who had lived outside of North Korea for many years and had no known power base in Pyongyang, was unlikely to be able to provide details of the secretive country’s inner workings,” the Journal said. The former officials also said Kim Jong Nam had been almost certainly in contact with security services of other countries, particularly China’s, the Journal said.Most Popular Kim Jong Un: New Meeting With Trump At DMZ ‘Meaningful’ If It Happened Kim Jong Un Snubs ‘Impudent’ Moon Jae-in, Fires Ballistic Missiles So Far So Good – Kim Jong Un On Weapons Tests Kim Jong Un Determined to Fight Pressure With Pressure North Korea Executes Kim Hyok Chol and Other Officials After Failed Kim-Trump Summit Kim Yong Chol: Purge’ North Korean Official Appears With Kim Jong Un Kim Jong Nam’s role as a CIA informant is mentioned in a new book about Kim Jong Un, “The GreatContinue reading
