I keep hearing about this Amazon thing. Maybe some day I will try it.

assassinated with poison darts from a blow gun

...in malaysia by two tribal women.

Now that's not something that happens every day, but today it did!

Yeah, apparently it still happens.

Were Russkies involved?

They think the two women were North Korean.

The victim was an outspoken long term critic of the current North Korean leadership.

Oh, right, Kim's cousin.  No russkies involved.  Sorry about that chief.

> Malaysian police official Fadzil Ahmat told Bernama, the Malaysian state news agency, that the deceased had been approached from behind.

> "A woman came from behind and covered his face with a cloth laced with a liquid," he said.

> The man was seen struggling for help and sought assistance from airport staff, he said. He was sent to hospital in an ambulance, but died on the way, Mr Fadzil said.


Meanwhile, Aus ABC (public broadcaster) claims not to know these important details:

> The half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has died after suddenly becoming ill at an airport in Kuala Lumpur, according to Malaysian police.

> Authorities said Kim Jong-nam reportedly died en route to hospital after he collapsed in the airport shopping area, but they were unable to confirm the cause of death.


They do this omitting-sensitive-stuff routine far too often. It shits me.

Ambush to cover face with poisonous cloth is really different from being shot with poison blow darts.

It's a little different -- poison cloth, vs. poison darts.

But hey, it gets the job done.
