It is believed that Jong-nam arrived in Malaysia from Macau on Feb 6 and was about to return there when he was attacked. "He was then taken for treatment at KLIA (Kuala Lumpur global airport) Clinic", Abdul Samah Mat, a Malaysian police chief, told The Telegraph. The source gave no further details.
Said Mr Fadzil: "He asked for help and was immediately sent to the airport's clinic". The effect of Kim Jong-nam's death on the regime isn't expected to be great, given that he was not an official.
The 15-nation UN body was "unanimous" in condemning the DPRK ballistic missile launches on February 11, 2017 and October19, 2016 while the council met behind closed doors here on Monday afternoon, Boloymyr Yelchenko, the Ukrainian permanent representative to the United Nations, who holds the rotating council presidency for February.
Airport authorities rushed him to the hospital and he died on the way, the police chief said. He is survived by two sons and a daughter, according to South Korea's National Intelligence Service. Kim Jong-Un took over as North Korean leader when his father died in December 2011. "It reflects Kim Jong-Un's propensity for paranoia, rather than his calculated act of removing a threat to his rule". "He wants North Korea to embrace economic reform and open its doors".
"I hope my younger brother will do his best for the sake of North Koreans' prosperous lives".

But his attempt to visit Tokyo Disneyland reportedly soured North Korea's leadership on his potential as a successor. Some reports also say that Kim Jong-nam may have been involved in recent political changes within the regime. He had also once told a Japanese TV station that he was personally opposed to a third generation of Kims ruling North Korea.
Among Kim Jong Un's executions and purges, the most spectacular was the 2013 execution of his uncle, Jang Song Thaek, once considered the country's second-most powerful man, for what the North alleged was treason.
Recently, South Korea had tried to negotiate Mr Kim's defection but failed, The Korea Herald reported. Kim Jong Nam was the eldest, followed by Kim Jong Chul, who is a few years older than Kim Jong Un and is known as a playboy who reportedly attended an Eric Clapton concert in London in 2015.
"So there is a possibility of Kim Jong Un directly or indirectly giving orders to get rid of those who could threaten the plan in the long term", he said.
