PETALING JAYA: Several foreign media reports are claiming that the two North Korean women alleged to have killed Kim Jong-nam at KLIA2 may already be dead.
In a tweet Wednesday, ABC News' Seoul bureau chief Joohee Cho claimed that Malaysian police had discovered the bodies of two women who are believed to be the assassins who poisoned the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un at the airport on Monday.
“Malay police reportedly found bodies of the two women suspected of killing Kim Jong Nam,” Cho tweeted from her personal account at 1.30pm.
However, the claims remain speculative as police have yet to comment on the matter.
The claims were also carried by Japan’s Kyodo News agency, quoting an unnamed Japanese government official as saying that the “two suspects may already be dead”.
