The estranged half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has been killed in Malaysia, a South Korean government source told Reuters on Tuesday.
An Indonesian woman arrested for her suspected involvement in the assassination of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s half brother in Malaysia was tricked into thinking she was part of a comedy show prank, Indonesia’s police chief said Friday.
Tito Karnavian told the Associated Press that Siti Aisyah, 25, received payment to be involved in a prank for Just For Laughs, a popular TV show. He said she and another woman carried out stunts that persuade men to close their eyes and then spray 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 told the AP.
