KUALA LUMPUR: A Vietnamese man believes his sister is one of the suspects arrested in Malaysia in connection with the murder of Kim Jong-nam, the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

Malaysian police have said that among those arrested was a woman with a Vietnamese travel document.

Joseph Doan has confirmed that his sister’s name was Doan Thi Huong and that she was born in 1988 in Nam Dinh province, southeast of the capital Hanoi.

Those details are the same as those released by Malaysian police.

“We only hear what everyone else hears on the Internet. But jud­ging from the pictures I have seen, it looks like her.

“I can’t be a 100% certain because we haven’t met her yet,” he said in Nam Dinh.

The padi farmer said his sister appeared to be the woman whose image was captured in a grainy airport CCTV image wearing a white shirt with the acronym “LOL” on it.

Doan said Vietnamese authorities had been in touch and had been supportive.

He said his sister had left home when she was 18 and came home occasionally and without letting anyone know when she would be back.

“Whenever she comes home, I can only tell her to study and work hard,” he said. — Reuters
