Malaysia arrests 2nd suspect in North Korean's death

Malaysian police arrested a woman Wednesday in the apparent assassination of Kim Jong Nam, the North Korean leader's exiled half brother who South Korean spies say once begged his sibling to spare his life.

After Kim Jong-il's death in 2011, Kim Jong-nam complained Kim Jong-un, who took over the North Korean leadership, was failing to treat him with respect and send him enough money, according to Cheong Seong-chang, an analyst at South Korea's Sejong Institute.

"He is not one of the prime suspects but he is assisting us with the investigation", Selangor police chief Comm Datuk Seri Abdul Samah Mat told local outlet The Star. He is believed to be the boyfriend of the second suspect.

Police also detained a man who provided information that led to the arrest of one of the women.

Police have arrested a total of three people, including two women, over the alleged poison plot. He died en route to hospital.

"Kim Jong-un was apparently anxious about Kim Jong-nam fleeing to the United States or South Korea out of fear of being killed", an unnamed official told the broadcaster. The first arrest was made on Wednesday when police arrested a woman carrying a Vietnamese passport at the airport.

Kim Jong Il forced Sung to divorce her first husband and live with him, but his father, North Korean founder Kim Il Sung, never accepted Sung as his daughter-in-law. Huong claimed she had thought it was a joke, but various circumstances (she had been staying at a hotel near the airport since February 11, and she was carrying a wad of cash amounting to 10,000 Malaysian ringgit, worth US$2,245) suggest that this was probably a contract killing.

Another intelligence source credited Kim Jong-nam's "magnanimous" personality for winning the hearts of Chinese authorities.

There has been no mention of half brother Kim Jong Nam's killing at the Kuala Lumpur airport in the North's official media.

"Police say airport surveillance footage shows two women approaching the 45-year old Kim in Terminal 2".

Underscoring the warm ties, North Korean President Kim Jong-Un holds an honorary doctorate in economics awarded by Help University, a private school in Malaysia, according to a 2013 report by the Korean Central News Agency.

In 2016, a British citizen was sentenced to 15 years in prison for plotting to import 100 kilograms of North Korean methamphetamine drugs into the U.S.

He was at a birthday celebration for his father, Kim Jong-Il, the second most important holiday of the year in North Korea.

A North Korean man driving a black Mercedes with North Korean diplomatic plates refused to answer a journalist's questions when he drove into the embassy in Kuala Lumpur Thursday afternoon.

News of his death has not been broadcast in North Korea, who the United States suspect was involved in his death.

It would be the highest-profile death under the watch of the North's young leader Kim Jong-un.

As a consensus grows that the country's political leaders ordered Mr. Kim's death, multiple theories are emerging for why they singled him out, and why now.

"The North Korean regime has never balked at eliminating dissent and making sure that alternate power centers do not form at home", Christopher Green, a North Korea watcher and a PhD candidate at Leiden University in The Netherlands, told The Christian Science Monitor on Wednesday.
