Kim Jong Nam, the brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, met with an American spy four days before he was murdered in Malaysia, news reports said.

On February 9, the 45-year-old, who was assassinated at Kuala Lumpur airport, met with a “middle-aged Korean-American” man in a hotel lift at the resort island of Langkawi in northern Malaysia, CCTV footage showed.

 

The Asahi Shimbun report said that Kim stayed in a hotel suite with the man for two hours. He had allegedly met the contact several times before, it said.

The report said that Kim's computer showed a record of a USB memory stick being inserted into it, which may have been used to pass on crucial information to the suspected US agent. Kim was poisoned with a lethal nerve agent just four days after the meeting.
