China watches closely after death of North Korean leader's half-brother

BEIJING (Reuters) - China’s Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday that it was closely watching developments following the death of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s half-brother in Malaysia, after the South Korean government said it believed he was murdered.

Spokesman Geng Shuang told a daily news briefing in Beijing that he was aware of media reports and understood the Malaysian authorities were investigating.
