KIM’S HALF-BROTHER SEEN IN JAKARTA

0

SEOUL: The elder half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un has surfaced in Indonesia, dismissing speculation that he might have been hiding following the execution of his uncle, a South Korean television reported on Tuesday. Kim Jong-Nam was sighted at an Italian restaurant run by a Japanese businessman in Jakarta on May 4 with two women, cable news network YTN said. YTN quoted one of Kim’s friends as saying the 43-year-old had been living well, shuttling back and forth among Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia and France, despite the shock execution of his uncle, Jang Song-Thaek, last December. Kim Jong-Nam was reportedly close to Jang, once the North’s unofficial number two and political mentor of current leader Kim Jong-Un.
