Video of Kim Jong-nam Assassination

Video of Kim Jong-nam Assassination

The low-quality CCTV footage purportedly shows the attack on Kim Jong-nam at Kuala Lumpur International Airport on February 13. A woman wearing a white shirt and blue skirt is seen approaching the man from behind – believed to be Kim Jong-nam – and grabbing his face while spraying him with some substance, presumably a fast-acting poison. Presumably, it’s the same “LOL-shirt wearing” Indonesian woman, who has already been identified as Siti Aishah and whose been detained by security forces.

A North Korean man, a Vietnamese woman, and an Indonesian woman have already been arrested in connection with the assassination. Authorities are still searching for four other North Korean suspects, who are believed to have left the country on the day Kim Jong-nam was killed.

The incident has sparked a flurry of acrimonious diplomatic activity between Pyongyang and Kuala Lumpur. North Korea’s ambassador was summoned to Malaysia’s Foreign Ministry over his remarks on the investigation after accusing the Malaysian government of “trying to conceal something” and “colluding with outside forces.”

The ambassador delivered his accusatory remarks, following Malaysia’s refusal to comply with North Korea’s request not to perform an autopsy on Kim Jong-nam’s body, since he held a diplomatic passport. Pyongyang also wants to be part of the investigation.

Malaysia responded by recalling its Ambassador from Pyongyang “for consultations.”

Kim Jong-nam was a vocal critic of his brother Kim Jong-un and the family’s dynastic control of North Korea. He had been living with his second wife in Macau, under China’s protection, according to South Korea’s intelligence agency.
