North Korean leader's half brother was reportedly an informant for the Central Intelligence Agency

North Korean leader's half brother was reportedly an informant for the Central Intelligence Agency”

The statement on state news agency KCNA, echoing a similar warning last week, reflected the stalemate since a second summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Hanoi in February collapsed.

"There was a nexus" between the USA spy agency and Kim Jong Nam, the source was quoted as saying.

The new report said its findings show arbitrary executions and extrajudicial killings under state custody have continued under the rule of young leader Kim Jong Un despite global criticism over how North Korea supposedly applies the death penalty without due judicial process.

Former officials said that he had nearly certainly been in contact with security services from other countries, particularly China's, although he had no known power base in Pyongyang and had not lived in the country for several years. The CIA declined to comment.

The former officials also said Kim Jong Nam had been nearly certainly in contact with security services of other countries, particularly China's, the Journal said.

The two women - who have said they thought they were taking part in a harmless prank for a TV show - smeared the nerve agent on his face at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport on February 13, 2017. "But Kim Jong Nam provided information to them, usually meeting his handlers in Singapore or Malaysia".

There has been speculation among former United States officials and analysts that outside countries, including China, saw Kim Jong-nam as a possible successor to Kim Jong-un should the latter's rule be in danger.

However, the specifics of Mr Kim's dealings with the Central Intelligence Agency have not been disclosed. The North has denied the allegation.

The Divinely Perfect Destiny of Brilliant Comrade Kim Jong Un, by Washington Post Beijing Bureau Chief Anna Fifield.

He was mysteriously killed at Malaysia's Kuala Lumpur Airport in February 2017.

After Kim Jong-nam's murder, his son Kim Han-sol and other family members were spirited out of Macau by a group of North Korean dissidents known as Cheollima Civil Defense, the group told The Wall Street Journal.

The book says that security camera footage from Kim Jong-nam's last trip to Malaysia showed him in a hotel elevator with an Asian-looking man who was reported to be a USA intelligence agent. The other woman, Siti Aisyah from Indonesia, was released in March after charges were dropped.

One defector held in a labour camp in the early 2000s described how 80 inmates were made to watch the killing of three women charged with trying to escape to China.
