PUTRAJAYA: More journalists have arrived at the Putrajaya Hospital mortuary as authorities continue to investigate the death of Kim Jong-nam.

Jong-nam, the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, died after he was attacked at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA2) on Monday.

Local and international media, some of whom have been camping out here all night, are still barred from entering the mortuary area, with the hospital security manning a blockade at the entrance.

Sepang OCPD Asst Comm Abdul Aziz Ali was seen arriving at the mortuary in an unmarked police car together with his investigation officers and a police escort at around 8am Wednesday.

Jong-nam is believed to have been assassinated 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. 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 the during when he was attacked.
