Police: Too early to conclude foreign special agents killed Jong Nam

The police say it is still too early to conclude that foreign special agents killed Kim Jong Nam, the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, in Malaysia on Monday.

Bukit Aman Special Branch director Mohamad Fuzi Harun said the investigation was ongoing and that the case was complicated.

He declined further comment when asked about the arrests of two women holding foreign passports and a Malaysian man over the killing.

Bernama had asked Fuzi about the possibility of foreign special agents being involved.

Two women, one aged 29 holding a Vietnamese passport bearing the name Doan Thi Huong, and the other aged 25 with an Indonesian passport under the name of Siti Aishah, and a 26-year-old Malaysian man believed to be the boyfriend of Siti Aishah have been arrested following the killing of Jong Nam.

Deputy Inspector-General of Police Noor Rashid Ibrahim had said that more arrests were expected.
It is learnt that the police are looking for four men to assist in the investigation.

On Monday, Jong Nam was at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (klia2) waiting to board a 9am flight to Macau when a woman suddenly covered his face with a cloth laced with what is believed to be poison.

Jong Nam, who had used a passport bearing the name of Kim Chol, sought help at a customer service counter at klia2. He was rushed to the Putrajaya Hospital but died on the way. - FMT
