    Second woman arrested over Kim Jong-nam poisoning

    Feb.16, Seoul: A second woman has been arrested in the connection with the death of Kim Jong-nam, the brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, reports said.

    Kim died on Monday after apparently being poisoned while waiting to board a flight in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

    According to police sources, they have now finished their post-mortem examination of his body, though the results have not yet been made public.


    The inspector general of the Royal Malaysia police, Sri Khalid Bin Abu Bakar, said the second woman was detained on Thursday over the death of "a Korean male".

    One woman, travelling on a Vietnamese passport, is due to appear in court. She was identified from airport CCTV footage and had an Indonesian passport.

    Malaysia has yet to formally confirm that the dead man, who was travelling under the name Kim Chol, is Kim Jong-nam, but South Korea says it is certain.
