Son of N Korean leader averts assassination attempt

Sunday, December 19, 2004 at 17:39 JST
SEOUL — The eldest son of North Korean leader Kim Jong Il was the target of an assassination attempt last month amid ongoing disputes over the communist state's power succession, South Korea's Yonhap News Agency reported Sunday, quoting a government source.

Those close to the younger brothers of Kim Jong Nam, 33, conspired to kill him while he was visiting Austria last month, the source was quoted as saying on condition of anonymity. The assassination bid, however, was foiled by the Austrian intelligence agency, which thereafter kept Kim under close guard, the source said. (Kyodo News)
