Malaysian police has arrested a female suspect in connection with the death of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un’s half-brother.

Her arrest came around 24 hours after news broke of the death of Kim Jong-Nam.  The police said that the woman was arrested at the airport in the capital Kuala Lumpur where Kim Jong-nam was targeted in an apparent poisoning on Monday. She was in possession of a Vietnamese travel document.

Malaysian police say they are looking for “a few” other suspects.  Police said the arrested suspect, who was alone, was identified from CCTV footage taken at the airport. They named her as Doan Thi Huong, 28.

South Korean media have widely reported that two women were involved and fled the airport in a taxi, though Malaysian police have not confirmed those details.

Malaysia is yet to formally confirm that the dead man is Kim Jong-nam, as he was travelling under a different name – Kim Chol. But the government of South Korea has said it is certain it is him. Pathologists in the Malaysian capital were examining the body for clues as to how he died
