Kim Jong-un's brother dies strangely in Malaysian airport.

Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

great narration of things happening in and around North Korea recently. NK is a good example on what a "strong leader" can act like.

Malaysian police say they have arrested a North Korean man involved in the killing of Kim Jong-nam, a move which could further entrench an intensifying diplomatic altercation.
The detained man, identified as Ri Jong Chol, 46, is the fourth person to be picked up by investigators and the only suspect from North Korea. They other three suspects hold Vietnamese, Indonesia and Malaysian documents.

Indonesia’s national police chief, Tito Karnavian, said that the Indonesian suspect, 25-year-old Siti Aisyah, was tricked into thinking she was part of a comedy show prank.

He said she and another woman, believed to be the suspect with Vietnamese documents, performed stunts which involved convincing men to close their eyes and then spraying them with water.

“Such an action was done three or four times and they were given a few dollars for it, and with the last target, Kim Jong-nam, allegedly there were dangerous materials in the sprayer,” Karnavian said.

“She was not aware that it was an assassination attempt by alleged foreign agents.”

Siti’s family have said they were shocked to hear of her involvement in the case, describing her as a struggling mother who had travelled to Malaysia for work. Her 26-year-old Malaysian boyfriend has also been arrested.

The second female suspect, captured on security camera footage at the airport in a top emblazoned with “LOL”, stayed at a hotel near the airport in the days before the attack, booking the cheapest room and carrying a wad of cash, according to a receptionist who spoke to Reuters.

Unverified reports in Malaysian media said Doan Thi Huong, who held a Vietnamese passport, also told police she thought she was working for a reality TV comedy...

Kim Jong-nam killed by VX nerve agent, say Malaysian police

One of the two women suspected of involvement in the poisoning vomited in police custody and was also suffering the effects of VX, which is only usually used in chemical warfare, the inspector general, Khalid Abu Bakar, said.

The findings followed a preliminary analysis of swabs taken from the face and eyes of Kim, the half-brother of the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un. More items linked to the attack at Kuala Lumpur airport were still being analysed, police said.

VX – also known as O-ethyl S-diisopropylaminomethyl methylphosphonothiolate – is classified by the United Nations as a weapon of mass destruction.

Kim Jong-nam died on 13 February from a seizure while being taken to hospital after complaining that a woman had sprayed chemicals in his face at Kuala Lumpur airport. Leaked CCTV footage shows a woman grabbing his face. Malaysian police had said earlier that two attackers rubbed a liquid on him before walking away and quickly washing their hands...

Ms. Huong’s Facebook page suggests that she led a peripatetic lifestyle, moving between hotel rooms in Cambodia and Malaysia in recent weeks. While stressing that they had no information about Ms. Huong’s particular situation, experts said that Vietnamese women who work as escorts, masseuses, prostitutes and waitresses in Southeast Asia’s wealthier cities, particularly Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, often follow a similar pattern of movement.

Ms. Huong’s posts from Malaysia, which showed her smiling coyly in portraits and videos, hardly seemed those of a hardened assassin. Photos showed ice cream, chicken wings and a smiling gray teddy bear propped up on a hotel bed.
