Weird How Kim Jong-un's Potential Rivals Keep Dying

Malaysia have detained a second woman over the death of the estranged half-brother of Kim Jong-un

"He was then taken for treatment at KLIA (Kuala Lumpur worldwide airport) Clinic", Abdul Samah Mat, a Malaysian police chief, told The Telegraph.

A 28-year-old woman carrying a Vietnamese passport was arrested at a Kuala Lumpur airport yesterday, as Malaysian police continued their investigation into the death of Mr Kim Jong Nam that some say is an assassination carried out by agents of North Korea. They fled in a taxi and were being sought by Malaysian police, the reports said.

North Korean embassy officials followed Jong-nam's body when it was taken to the hospital on Wednesday morning.

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. He is survived by two sons and a daughter, according to South Korea's National Intelligence Service.

Officials said they plan to use bags of rocks to plug the hole in the emergency spillway, but the situation is still precarious. Governor Jerry Brown has sent a letter to President Donald Trump requesting further federal aid for the Oroville Dam emergency.

Reports surfaced that Kim Jong Nam fell from favor from the ruling family after he was caught trying to sneak a visit to Tokyo Disneyland using a forged document in 2001 - an assertion that one journalist who spoke to Kim countered in a 2012 book.

The North Korean officials requested that the body be released to them right away, but Malaysia rejected the request, several sources said.

"The news about Kim Jong-nam will be put out either through loudspeaker broadcasts or the radio, where senior officials are sure to feel their lives are threatened by the fact that Kim Jong-un killed a family member". In a 2014 interview in Paris with a South Korean newspaper, he said he didn't know much or care to know much about his half brother's regime.

China is North Korea's main ally.

Sent into exile, he lived in Macau until Kim Jong-il's death in 2011.

He also frequented casinos, five-star hotels and traveled around Asia, with little say in North Korean affairs.

Although there was scant evidence that Kim Jong Nam was plotting against the North Korean leader, he provided an alternative for North Koreans who would want to depose his brother.

"Personally, I am against third-generation succession", he told Japan's Asahi TV in 2010, before his younger had succeeded their father.

Evacuees allowed to return to homes near Oroville dam
Northern California officials on Tuesday lifted an evacuation order for almost 200,000 residents who live below the Oroville Dam . Last week, heavy rains and rapid snowmelt opened a gaping hole in the main spillway of the tallest dam in the United States.

Kim Yong-hyun, professor of North Korean Studies at Dongguk University in South Korea, said Kim Jong Nam could have faced threats from any number of directions. "Kim Jong-un could strengthen his grip on power in the short term, but it will weaken his power base in the long term and it could mark the beginning of the end of the regime".
