Police official Fadzil Ahmat said the cause of death was not yet known, and a post-mortem would be carried out on the body.
According to the official, Kim Jong-nam had been planning to travel to Macau on Monday when he fell ill at the airport’s low-cost terminal. “He felt dizzy, so he asked for help at the counter of KLIA.”
Kim Jong-nam was taken to an airport clinic where he still felt unwell, and it was decided to take him to hospital :: Read the full article »»»»

South Korea, US and Chinese authorities have scrambled for confirmation of the test, however officials in Seoul have cast doubt on the claim it was a hydrogen bomb saying no radiation had been detected. If confirmed, the explosion marks a major step forward in the country’s nuclear development. The surprise test was personally ordered by North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and came just two days before his birthday :::: Read the full article »»»»

Emergency Service officials in the Japanese city of Yokohama have been left red-faced after mistakenly announcing the launch of a North Korean missile to 40,000 followers on Twitter. The city, south of Tokyo, prematurely fired its tweet just before noon (local time), announcing “North Korea has launched a missile” with blank spaces to indicate the exact time.
South Korean and US forces have raised their alert status to “vital threat” before an expected North Korean missile test, with tensions high in the run-up to a key anniversary. Any launch could coincide with visits by US secretary of state John Kerry and NATO chief Anders Fogh Rasmussen, who will both be in South Korea this Friday.
South Korean foreign minister Yun Byung-Se told parliament the launch could take place “any time” and warned Pyongyang it risked triggering a fresh round of UN sanctions :: Read the full article »»»»

South Korea has successfully launched a space rocket carrying a science satellite, in a high-stakes test of national pride after North Korea got there first with a rocket launch last month. It was the South’s third attempt to launch a civilian rocket to send a satellite in orbit in the past four years.
It came after two previous launches were aborted at the 11th hour last year due to technical glitches. The launch vehicle, named Naro, lifted off from South Korea’s space centre on the south coast and successfully went through stage separation before entering orbit, officials at mission control said.
Initially scheduled for October 26, today’s launch had been twice postponed for technical reasons. The delay meant that rival North Korea was able to claim a rare technological victory over the South by launching a satellite into orbit on a three-stage rocket on December 12.
South Korea remains far behind regional rivals China and Japan in the effort to build space rockets to put satellites into orbit and has relied on other countries, including Russia, to join the space race :: Read the full article »»»»

Iran Sends A Monkey into Space! or Does It? Iran’s defence minister says the country has successfully sent a monkey into space, paving the way for a manned space flight.
Arabic-language channel Al-Alam and other Iranian news agencies said the monkey returned alive after travelling in a capsule to an altitude of 120 kilometres for a sub-orbital flight. “This success is the first step towards man conquering the space and it paves the way for other moves,” Ahmad Vahidi told state television “Today’s successful launch follows previous successes we had in launching (space) probes with other living creatures (on board),” he said. The monkey which was sent in this launch landed safely and alive and this is a big step for our experts and scientists.”
The Week however, has reported that …something was amiss: Upon further inspection, it appears the monkey that returned from space doesn’t match the monkey that left. Images newly released from a press conference prior to the launch show a monkey with light fur and a conspicuous red mole above its eye. The mole is mysteriously missing on the monkey that returned, which also has notably darker hair :: Read the full article »»»»
