CCTV photos have been released of at least one of the women who allegedly killed Kim Jong Nam in Malaysia.

The 45-year-old half brother of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un was found dead at Kuala Lumpur International airport on Monday. According to reports, he was killed by a fabric held to his face that burned his eyes while he waited to board a flight to Macau. 

South Korean media reports that the killing was carried out by two female assassins believed to be Vietnamese agents, who fled the scene via taxi.

Images released from cameras at KLIA2 show at least one of the alleged killers. In one photo, a suspect can be seen wearing a white sweatshirt with the phrase "LOL" printed in large letters across the front. She is also wearing a blue skirt and holding a small handbag on her right side.


Some other images show the women waiting for a cab in front of the airport.

The suspects have yet to be apprehended, though the taxi driver in his 30s who picked the women up has been arrested.

Previously seen as the successor of his late father Kim Jong Il, Kim Jong Nam fell out of favor after a heavily-publicized botched attempt to visit Tokyo Disneyland using a fake passport in May 2001. He holds no official title in the Worker’s Party of Korea.
