Doan Thi Huong, 28, was arrested on Wednesday morning at Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2, according to a statement by Malaysian police Inspector General Khalid Bin Abu Bakar.

The half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un has been assassinated in Malaysia, South Korea's Yonhap news agency reported onTuesday.

Malaysia started an autopsy Wednesday to determine the cause of death. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the case involves sensitive diplomacy. The South Korean embassy in Washington, D.C., said it did not have independent confirmation of the reports but was monitoring media coverage. It was not immediately clear whether the passport was genuine. She is believed to be the woman captured on CCTV, wearing a white t-shirt with the words "LOL" emblazoned on it.

Twitter was also abuzz over a tweet by ABC News' Seoul bureau chief Joohee Cho claiming that Malaysian police had found the bodies of two women believed to be the operatives.

Fire breaks out at Disneyland parking structure
Nearly $180,000 (£145,000) worth of damage was caused by the fire at the theme park in Anaheim, California, on Monday afternoon. A fierce blaze at a Disneyland auto park has left at least eight vehicles scorched and four people needing hospital treatment.

"The members of the Security Council further regretted that the DPRK is diverting resources to the pursuit of ballistic missiles while DPRK citizens have great unmet needs", the statement said. It is possible that Kim Jong Un feels under threat and that his eldest half-brother could have been promoted as an alternative leader.

South Korea's National Intelligence Service (NIS) said Kim Jong Nam has been under a "kill order" since his half-brother took power in 2011, according to opposition politician Kim Byung Kee.

While the most likely explanation for the killing was that Kim Jong Un was removing a potential challenger to North Korean leadership within his own family, he could also be sending a warning to North Korean officials to demonstrate the reach of the regime. He later said he was trying to bring his family to Tokyo Disneyland. "We are still looking for a few suspects, they are all still in Malaysia". The NIS has a history of botching intelligence on North Korea and has long sought to portray the country's leaders as mentally unstable.

Kim Jong Nam and Kim Jong Un have the same father, late dictator Kim Jong Il, but different mothers.

However, the police sources added that, officials from the secretive communist state had been to the hospital and were coordinating with Malaysian authorities. Initial reports on Tuesday said he was killed by poisoned needles, but Mr Kim apparently told airport staff that some liquid was splashed on him. In 2010, he was quoted in Japanese media as saying he opposed dynastic succession in North Korea. For that reason, Kim Jong Nam was considered an illegitimate son and grew up in seclusion, Cheong said. The 46-year-old Kim Jong-Nam had been living overseas after falling from grace in 2001 for visiting Disneyland in Tokyo.

Jong Nam, estranged from the reclusive North Korean regime, was pronounced dead after being rushed to a hospital.

Hwang said South Korea was keeping a close check on North Korea's movements.

Speculation and rumors surrounding Kim Jong-nam's killing are rapidly swelling, despite any concrete evidence as to why Jong-nam was killed now.
