at 10:41 A.M. BBC news released the latest report on Kim Jong Nam’s assassination, which suggests death by poison rag rather than needles. As a breaking story, it takes precedent as the hot issue of the morning as far as international stories go. It’s a bit light on sourcing with one named in the form of Malaysian Police official, Fadzil Ahmat, and another from the people dissecting Nam as events unfold. The article does a good job of summing up Nam’s personal history in digestible bits to let readers know Nam’s significance and why spies were gunning for his life in the first place.
Beyond the basics that the reader needs to be caught up on, the story itself doesn’t dive too deeply into the smaller details of the event. The story is ongoing, and a lot of the motives and responsible parties are yet to be known, but everything that is currently available on the assassination is available, as well as links to stories about Nam’s past.
