The Star reported that:
Fast and clean
TWO fair-skinned women, both with shoulder-length hair, walked up to an unsuspecting Kim Jong-nam, grabbed his face and splashed it with a lethal liquid that left him dead within hours.
One of the women was wearing a white top, a denim skirt and a blue backpack. The second woman was in a blue top and a pair of jeans. Both are believed to have features similar to Korean women.
After pulling off their daring act, they quickly walked out of the KLIA2 terminal and took a cab.
It all happened so quickly that MAHB and airport staff were oblivious to what had happened. It was only when Jong-nam approached a customer service officer to tell her of his pain that the horror of the assassination came to light.
KUALA LUMPUR: The half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has been assassinated in Malaysia, believed to be by two women operatives who attacked him with liquid poison just before he was to take a flight to Macau.
The 45-year-old was killed by the two female agents who splashed his face with a chemical at the airport’s departure hall at about 9am on Monday. The women later got into a cab and fled.
It is believed that Jong-nam arrived in Malaysia from Macau on Feb 6 and was about to leave when he was attacked by the female spies.
