N. Korean video details alleged Kim Jong Un assassination attempt

Uriminzokkiri video claims DPRK national paid by CIA, NIS, and NGO to murder leader

A North Korean state media video published last Thursday shows for the first time the man alleged to have been working with U.S. and South Korean intelligence agencies to assassinate Kim Jong Un in April.

The video, which also presents new details about how the assassination attempt on Kim Jong Un was planned, follows a flurry of claims in state media – first emerging on May 5 – alleging that a DPRK national had been bribed to kill North Korea's leader using "biochemical substances."
