Mystery woman: A CCTV screen grab showing a woman outside what looked like the airport, was circulated briefly after news broke last night that the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un had been killed in Malaysia. The picture fits the description of one of the two women believed to be North Korean spies, who had poisoned Kim Jong-nam during a brazen attack at KLIA2.
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.
