[How Macau Became North Korea’s Secret Overseas Base]

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. February 13th, 2017. A frantic Korean man approached an airport receptionist in the departure hall of Terminal 2, in Kuala Lumpur International Airport. He claimed someone had grabbed him from behind and splashed a mysterious liquid on his face; and he was now feeling some discomfort. The receptionist sent him to the airport’s medical clinic to be looked at by doctors, but it wasn’t long until he became unresponsive.

Less than 20 minutes later, he was dead.

The liquid that was smeared on his face turned out to be VX nerve agent (a chemical weapon categorized as a weapon of mass destruction). The victim was Kim Jong-nam – the half brother of North Korea’s Supreme Leader, Kim Jong-un.

Before his untimely death, Nam was set to return home to Macau (after a business trip in Kuala Lumpur) – Macau was where he had lived anonymously with his family the past two decades.

But while he never made it back, the aftermath of his assassination brought a great deal of unwanted attention to the Chinese city he lived in, for the long-standing secretive relationship between Macau and North Korea was now in the limelight.
