3 suspects arrested in connection with assassination of Kim Jong UnUpdated on : 17-02-2017 01:05 PM
Malaysian authorities have arrested three people in connection with the death of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's half brother Kim Jong Nam.


The suspects – two women and a man – were picked up separately by Malaysian police Wednesday and early Thursday as investigators work to piece together details of the case.

News of the arrests come a day after South Korea's National Assembly Intelligence Committee chairman said Kim Jong Nam died Monday morning after being poisoned at the airport.

A 26-year-old Malaysian man, who is the boyfriend of another suspect, was arrested Wednesday in the city of Anpang. He helped lead police to his 25-year-old girlfriend Siti Aishah.

She was arrested carrying an Indonesian passport on Thursday, Malaysian Police said.

The first arrest was made on Wednesday when a 28-year-old woman Doan Thi Huong carrying a Vietnamese travel document was taken into custody by police at the airport.

Both women have been remanded in custody for seven days, according to police.

The two women struck on Monday as Kim Jong-Nam was readying to board a flight to Macau where he has spent many years in exile.
