Malaysian police say second suspect in North Korean's murder had Indonesian passport

KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - Malaysian police said the second female suspect detained on Thursday in connection with the killing of the estranged half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was carrying an Indonesian passport.

She was positively identified from the CCTV footage at the Kuala Lumpur airport, the police said in a statement, adding that the arrest was made at 0200 local time on Thursday.

Malaysian police on Wednesday detained a woman holding Vietnam travel papers and said they were looking for a “few” other foreign suspects in connection with the apparent assassination of Kim Jong Nam at the Kuala Lumpur airport.
