3 held in Kim Jong-nam's death

Passengers leave the departure hall Thursday at Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Malaysia where Kim Jong Nam was reportedly attacked and killed two days before.

Kim Jong Nam, 45, was preparing to fly to his home in Macau from Kuala Lumpur on Monday morning when he was attacked and poisoned by two women at Terminal 2 of the global airport, authorities said.

The suspect identified as Doan Thi Huong traveled to Vietnam and South Korea several times with the man on shopping and sightseeing excursions.

Kim Jong-nam, who was aged 45 or 46, had lived in exile for years and was estranged from his younger half-brother, the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

Malaysia's Chinese-language daily China Press reported on Saturday that the arrest was made on Friday evening in the capital.

The events leading up to his death are sketchy, but Selangor State Criminal Investigations Department Chief Fadzil Ahmat told Reuters Kim "felt like someone grabbed or held his face from behind".

Kim sought help at the airport's help desk, telling a receptionist there he felt dizzy.

"They said that they should conduct a post-mortem on him in order to clarify the cause of the death", the ambassador said. An ambulance was called and he was sent to the Putrajaya Hospital close by. He died while being taken to hospital.

I suppose it's one way to ensure you blend into the crowd.

North Korean agents have killed rivals overseas before. He didn't reveal how South Korea had discovered this or what poison had been used in the killing.

Kanari Gentry Bowers, 12, remained in critical condition and on life support Tuesday after another shooting over the weekend. The 12-year old, Kanari Gentry-Bowers, was also shot Saturday and is now in critical condition at Stroger Hospital.

The North Korean man was apprehended on Friday in Selangor, near Kuala Lumpur.

No motive for the killing has been revealed, nor any explanation of how he was poisoned. He didn't provide any evidence.

After growing up in Western countries, Kim had been living outside North Korea for decades.

The envoy said Malaysian authorities have been asked to release Kim Jong Nam's body "without further delay".

On Thursday, the remand proceedings involving two foreign women, one of them Vietnamese, were conducted at the district police headquarters.

She was wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with word "LOL" during the attack at Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

However, she also said that if the women had actually been involved in a prank, "They would not have run away".

At about 6.15pm, three police vehicles were seen entering the compound and a man, who looked like a Korean, alighted from one of the cars and was heavily guarded by police.

Elise adds that investigators have also apprehended a third suspect, identified as a taxi driver, who is said to be linked to the women.

Indonesian national Siti Aisyah is among at least four people arrested in connection with his death.
