Shocking images of the moment Kim Jong-nam was assassinated in a Malaysian airport have emerged for the first time. The half-brother of North Korea's dictator Kim Jong-un was poisoned on 13 February, allegedly by two women believed to be acting on behalf of the rogue state. In the picture published on the front cover of the New Straits Times on Saturday (18 February), Jong-nam can be seen unconscious and slumped in an airport, moments after the lethal substance was deployed. It was originally thought the two women involved were North Korean spies, but it emerged on Saturday that at least one of the women - Sisi Asiyah, 25, from Indonesia - believed they were taking part in a television prank, though this has not been officially confirmed.

Worse still, owners Lee and Lelia Beckelman, of the Houston area, had a contract to sell the house at 2736 Forest Park Blvd. Their son had lived there with roommates while he attended Texas Christian University, but he moved out in August
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is telling friends and staff he is taking a role with the Trump administration, according to a source close to the White House. The GOP governor’s position has not been worked out, but he would not replace Reince Preibus as the president’s chief-of-staff, the source said. “Trump told him to be patient,” the source said. “Christie will only take something where he is answerable to the president.” Trump told The Wall Street Journal last month “at some point, we’re going to do something with Chris.” But the White House said it has not offered Christie a position.
