  • North Korean leader Kim Jong Un reportedly fears being assassinated while traveling to Singapore to meet with President Donald Trump.
  • Kim has long feared assassination, even within his own country.
  • While in transit and in Singapore, he’ll be almost defenseless against sophisticated attempts on his life.
  • Kim’s constant fear of assassination may seem paranoid, but his own half brother was killed in an airport in Malaysia, right next to Singapore. 
  • Singapore has taken remarkable measures to guarantee the security during the summit, including blocking off parts of the city and restricting airspace. 

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un reportedly fears being assassinated on his way to Singapore to meet with President Donald Trump, a trip that will take him further outside of his country than he’s been since taking power in 2011.

Kim is “extremely worried about security at the summit and is fearful of assassination attempts,” Bloomberg quoted two sources familiar with the talks as saying.
