Kim Jong-nam 'not endangered' by book about North Korea

Japanese journalist Yoji Gomi says that his book My Father, Kim Jong Il, and I does not pose any threat to Kim Jong-nam, the eldest brother of North Korea's present leader Kim Jong-un.

Based on interviews with Kim Jong-nam, the book provides insight into the hereditary system in North Korea and Jong-nam's concerns about his younger brother's ability to lead the country.
