North Koreans being pursued as suspects in Kim Jong Nam death: local press

One suspect, arrested this morning, was identified by CCTV footage, RMP say

Malaysian Police are pursuing a group of five suspects comprised of "Vietnamese and North Koreans" in connection with the murder of Kim Jong Nam, the now-deceased half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, according to reports in local outlet the Oriental Daily.

The lead allegedly came from a statement to police by a Vietnamese woman who was detained this morning at Kuala Lumpur International Airport's KLIA2 terminal, having apparently returned to the scene of Monday's crime.
