It only took five seconds for assassins to kill Kim Jong Nam

Police said the third suspect is a Malaysian man whom they believe is the boyfriend of an Indonesian woman arrested earlier in the day, according to the Associated Press.
Malaysian authorities are probing the assassination of Kim who was reportedly poisoned at the Kuala Lumpur airport by two female assassins allegedly working for the North Korean nation. She was carrying Vietnamese documents, which said her name was Doan Thi Huong and gave her age as 30.
North Korea had objected to the autopsy but Malaysia went ahead with the procedure anyway as the North did not submit a formal protest, said Abdul Samah Mat, a senior Malaysian police official.
Malaysian police suspect that a total of four men and two women were involved, according to foreign news reports.
Police said the Malaysian man, a auto driver who was picked up on Wednesday, had provided information that led to her arrest yesterday morning, reported Malaysian newspaper The Star.
Another enigma is why the first suspect reappeared at the same airport two days after the killing. "The only assumptions we can make are that North Korea became so nervous or that the organization has weakened considerably".
North Korea has requested Kim's body but Malaysia authorities said they wouldn't release it until investigations are complete.
The attack on Kim Jong Nam was carried out in public view at Kuala Lumpur International Airport, and images of the suspects were easily caught on security cameras. Kim Jong Un, who is only 33, has steadily gone through the ranks eliminating people who could pose a leadership challenge to him. Observers now see even slimmer odds of a China-North Korea summit, which has not been held so far under Kim Jong Un.

Honestly, who knows what comes next in the murder mystery that is the death of Kim Jong-Nam?
People watch a television showing news reports of Kim Jong-Nam, the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, at a railway station in Seoul on February 14, 2017.
North Korea's ruling Kim family is the most secretive dynasty.
As the first-born son of late dictator Kim Jong-il, Kim was once assumed to be the heir to the dictatorship but later fell out of favor, and in recent years he denied having any interest in power.
However, Kim Jong-nam refrained from openly criticising the North and kept a low profile after Kim Jong-un executed his uncle and former protector Jang Song-thaek, once considered the country's second-most powerful person, in 2013.
South Korean government sources said that military has plans to use loudspeakers along the Korean border to inform the North Koreans of Jong-nam's death in a bid to reveal the brutality of the North's regime.
The Japanese journalist did not try to speculate on who might be behind Kim Jong-nam's killed at Kuala Lumpur International Airport or if it was tied to North Korea.
