North Korean leader’s half-brother murdered in Malaysia: Reuters

I noticed this tid-bit in the details of the story.

The portly and easygoing Kim Jong Nam was believed to be close to his uncle, Jang Song Thaek, who was North Korea’s second most powerful man before being executed on Kim Jong Un’s orders in 2013.
Sometimes being second-most-powerful just isn’t good enough.
