The investigation in one of the most high-profile killings related to North Korea made a slow headway on Thursday as Malaysian authorities arrested two more suspects in connection with the apparent assassination of Kim Jong-un’s half-brother. The detainees include an Indonesian woman and a Malaysian man believed to be her boyfriend.
Kim Jong-nam’s death after an apparent poison attack at Kuala Lumpur international airport on Monday remains a mystery with more questions than answers, writes the BBC. What intrigues many is that fact that the suspected assassination took place in broad daylight at a crowded place and yet there is no evidence left behind.
As the Malaysian authorities wait for an autopsy report, the speculations that North Korean agents eliminated Jong-nam gained momentum on Thursday, notes Reuters. Malaysia's deputy prime minister said the body will be released to the next of kin after all the police and medical procedures are completed.
