Opposition warns against politicizing murder of N.K. leader's half brother

South Korea's opposition leader on Thursday warned the government and conservative rivals against attempts to politicize the death of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's half brother.

Kim's eldest brother, Kim Jong-nam, was killed in Malaysia on Monday in an apparent assassination.

"The exact cause of Kim Jong-nam's death and who was behind it were not confirmed yet, while various rumors swirl," Rep. Choo Mi-ae of the main opposition Democratic Party said. "The government should focus all of its efforts to find out the entire picture of the case and faithfully report it to the people."

She said the party will not condone any attempts by right-wing parties to take advantage of the incident to fan national security concerns for political gains ahead of the presidential election.
