BANGKOK: The murder of Kim Jong-nam at the KL International Airport 2 (KLIA2) three weeks ago, has rekindled a Japanese association's interest in a mysterious incident that happened 39 years ago.

On Aug 20, 1978, five young women comprising four Malaysians and a Singaporean mysteriously disappeared after they were asked by a man – said to be Japanese – to join a party on a boat off the republic's coast.
