Second woman held in Malaysia over death of North Korean leader´s half-brother Kim Jong Nam

Two women and a man have been arrested over the killing of the North Korean leader’s half brother, who was reportedly poisoned by a pair of female assassins as he waited for a flight in Malaysia, Malaysian police said.

Investigators are trying to piece together the details of a death that set off a torrent of speculation over whether Kim Jong Un dispatched a hit squad to kill his estranged older sibling, Kim Jong Nam.

The suspects were picked up separately on Wednesday and Thursday. The women were identified using surveillance footage from Kuala Lumpur International Airport, where Kim Jong Nam fell ill on Monday morning before dying on the way to hospital.
