The half-brother of North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un has been killed at Kuala Lumpur Airport with police searching for two women assailants. Due to Kim Jong Nam's criticism of the regime, there's suspicion the regime was involved. Anna Fifield from the Washington Post's Tokyo bureau says he was smothered with a soaked cloth and died on the way to hospital.
