SEOUL: The half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, who has been murdered in Malaysia, pleaded for his life to be spared after a failed assassination bid in 2012, lawmakers briefed by Seoul's spy chief said Wednesday.

Kim Jong-nam died after reportedly being attacked by two women believed to be North Korean agents at Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA2) on Monday.
