“KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — Malaysian authorities announced two more arrests Thursday in the death of the North Korean leader’s half brother, whose apparent assassination this week unleashed a wave of speculation and intrigue: a pair of female assailants, a broad-daylight killing and a dictator-sibling out for blood.

Investigators were still piecing together details of the case, including the widespread assumption that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un dispatched a hit squad to kill his estranged half brother, Kim Jong Nam. Known for his love of gambling and casinos, Kim Jong Nam had lived abroad for years, aware he was a hunted man.

Three suspects — two women and a man — were arrested separately Wednesday and Thursday. The women were identified using surveillance videos from Kuala Lumpur International Airport, where Kim Jong Nam, who was 45 or 46, suddenly fell ill Monday morning.

Malaysian officials said he died on the way to a hospital after telling medical workers at the airport that he had been sprayed with a chemical.”

  1. Why did it (coincidentally) happen when the Japanese Prime Minister was visiting Trump at Mar-a-Lago and a missile was test-fired over the Sea of Japan? One of Trump's famous quotes popped into my mind: "Ya gotta kill their families" .. hmmm .. and maybe blame it on somebody else? I should be a crime writer.

  2. There was a report only a couple of weeks ago about sections of the military establishment being fed up with Kim Jong Un. I wonder if Un was worried that they may have been trying to replace him with his half-brother, who they could more easily control. Given the deep-rooted propaganda about the family, they couldn't just replace him with anybody.
