Exclusive: Malaysia mistook slain Kim Jong Nam for South KoreanBy Tom Allard, Emily Chow and James Pearson KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) – Malaysian authorities wrongly identified the slain half-brother of North Korea’s leader as a South Korean national and first alerted Seoul’s embassy in Kuala Lumpur soon after his death, sources familiar with the incident told Reuters. The police error did have a silver lining: It enabled Seoul to quickly inform Kuala Lumpur the dead man was probably Kim Jong Nam, half-brother to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
