Malaysian media cite government sources saying closed-circuit cameras at the airport caught two women approaching Kim. The airport is in Selangor, near Kuala Lumpur. The 46-year-old Kim Jong-Nam had been living overseas after falling from grace in 2001 for visiting Disneyland in Tokyo. One of the bombers confessed to being a North Korean military officer.
Kim Jong-nam, aged 45, was the eldest son of North Korea's late leader Kim Jong-il and actress Sung Hae-rim.
He was believed to have fallen out of favor with his father in 2001 after a widely publicized incident in which he tried to enter Japan using a fake passport, purportedly so he could visit Tokyo Disneyland with his family.
The statement also confirmed that the female suspect was taken into custody while in the possession of a Vietnamese travel document.
After A Lengthy Break, White House Tours Will Resume In March
Once the belle of the ball of socialite circles, Melania Trump's life has drastically changed since her husband became president. The White House vegetable garden can be traced back to 1800 when the first garden was planted by then-first lady Abigail Adams.
Kim Jong Nam, the older half brother of the DPRK leader, was known to spend a significant amount of his time outside the country and had spoken out publicly against his family's dynastic control of the isolated state. He is believed to have been born May 10, 1971.
On February 13, the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un was killed at an airport in Malaysia. It follows the defection a year ago of a senior diplomat from the North Korean Embassy in London who has spoken of his despair at Kim's purges.
The aim of the suspected assassination of Kim Jong-nam in Malaysia on Monday would have been to eliminate a focal point for dissidents and potential threat to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's rule, pundits believe.
Jong-Un has been trying to strengthen his grip on power in the face of growing worldwide pressure over his country's nuclear and missile programmes, and regular reports have emerged on purges and executions. In 2013, he sentenced to death his uncle, Jang Song Thaek, once considered his mentor and the country's second-most-powerful man, for what the North alleged was treason.

With the sanctions, El Aissami's USA -based assets have been frozen and he is forbidden from entering the country. The Venezuelan opposition is looking for greater pressure on Maduro from the new USA government.
"Our government is certain that the murdered man is Kim Jong Nam, " said Chung Joon-Hee, a spokesman for Seoul's unification ministry, which handles inter-Korea affairs.
The agency also said North Korea had long prepared for the murder of Kim Jong-nam, the MPs said, although they did not explain how the agency knows that. North Korea has asked for the country to return the body to Kim Jong-Un, but Malaysian authorities have stated that they are performing an autopsy for cause of death and won't buck procedures.
There is no word as to whether police are searching for more suspects.
Kim Jong Il had at least three sons with two women, as well as a daughter by a third.
