PUTRAJAYA - More journalists have arrived at the Putrajaya Hospital mortuary as authorities continue to investigate how Kim Jong-nam was killed.

Jong-nam, the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, died after he was attacked at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA2) on Monday.

Sepang OCPD Asst Comm Abdul Aziz Ali was seen arriving at the mortuary in an unmarked police car together with his investigation officers and a police escort at around 8am Wednesday.

Jong-nam is believed to have been assassinated by two women operatives who attacked him with liquid poison just before he was to take a flight to Macau.

The 45-year-old was killed by the two female agents who splashed his face with a chemical at the airport's departure hall at about 9am on Monday. The women later got into a cab and fled.

It is believed that Jong-nam arrived in Malaysia from Macau on Feb 6 and was about to leave when he was attacked by the female spies.
