Kim Jong-Nam was reportedly assassinated by two Pyongyang agents at Kuala Lumpur International Airport on Monday as he waited to catch a flight to Macau.

Malaysia rejected the request and had yet to decide whether to hand over to North Korea the body of Kim Jong Nam, 46, who died after a mysterious assault at Kuala Lumpur airport on Monday.

He told medical workers before he died that he had been attacked at the airport with a chemical spray, the Malaysian officials told the AP.

Malaysian officials have provided few other details. The cause of death remains unknown.

In previous years, Kim Jong Nam expressed disinterest in leading North Korea.

Kim Jong Nam was doomed the moment Kim Jong Un was named the future leader, the former diplomat said.

The U.S. Department of State told ABC News on Tuesday that it was aware of the reports about Kim Jong Nam's alleged assassination and referred questions to Malaysian authorities.

Kim Jong Nam, the older half brother of the DPRK leader, was known to spend a significant amount of his time outside the country and had spoken out publicly against his family's dynastic control of the isolated state. "It is also possible that China is looking for an alternative North Korean leader and could have thrown their support behind another member of the Kim family".

Kim Yong-hyun, professor of North Korean Studies at Dongguk University in South Korea, said Kim Jong Nam could have faced threats from any number of directions.

Yoji Gomi, the author of " My Father, Kim Jong Il, and I: Kim Jong Nam's Exclusive Confession' told the Telegraph in 2012 that Kim felt suffocated by Chinese agents who he didn't know if they were protecting him or monitoring him. In 2013, the North Korean ambassador to Malaysia was recalled and executed as part of the last major political purge, which targeted Jang Song-Thaek, an uncle of Kim Jong-Un.

A senior police official in Japan has stated that "information is now being gathered surrounding the circumstances and background" of Kim Jong Nam's death.

The reported killing came as North Korea celebrated its latest missile launch, which foreign experts were analysing for evidence of advancement in the country's missile capabilities.

Kim Jong Nam and Kim Jong Un have the same father, late dictator Kim Jong Il, but different mothers.

Given Kim Jong Un's recent dismissal of a close aide and head of the secret police, some believe the murder resulted from a race between the secret police and the spy agency to prove their loyalty to the supreme leader. In 2010, Jong-nam wrote that how his heart "aches" to "see or hear about the way people live in North Korea".
