Lee also cited the NIS as saying that Kim Won Hong's dismissal was linked to the false reports said to have "enraged" Kim Jong Un when they were discovered.

Metro.co.uk has already reported that Aisyah claimed she was part of a Just For Laughs-style sketch, a hidden camera show involving pranking people.

VX is an oily liquid that is odorless, tasteless and amber in color.

In airport surveillance footage, the women appear to smear something onto Kim's face with their hands before walking away in separate directions.

The other woman in custody, Vietnamese Doan Thi Huong, 28, told Hanoi officials she had been tricked into killing Kim and thought she was taking part in a prank for a comedy video.

Organophosphates are used in insecticides, medication and nerve agents, with those poisoned showing symptoms like increased saliva and tear production, diarrhea, vomiting, small pupils, sweating, muscle tremors and confusion.

Officials further affirmed that Huong is from the northern province of Nam Dinh, confirming statements issued by Malaysian police and the worldwide press over the past week. A quantity no larger than a few grains of salt is enough to kill someone.

He sought help from airport staff but fell into convulsions and died on the way to the hospital within two hours of the attack, police said.

'She only said in general that somebody had asked her to do it and she didn't know what would happened next. Her name has previously been reported as So Yong La.

Police confirmed that a raid on a condominium on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur was related to the probe. The police forensic team, fire department and Atomic Energy Licensing Board swept the budget terminal of Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA2) at 1 a.m. on Feb. 26 (1700 GMT on February 25).

In Kuala Lumpur, Malaysian police have named a second secretary at Pyongyang's embassy there as one of the eight North Korean suspects and have threatened to issue arrest warrants for him and for an employee of North Korea's state-run airline, if the embassy did not turn them over for questioning by investigators.

The Royal Malaysia Police said in a statement today that a preliminary analysis found VX nerve agent on the eyes and face of the victim, who was allegedly attacked in a departure area of the Kuala Lumpur International Airport and died as he was being transported to the hospital on February 13.

It was unclear if those four were the four North Korean spies cited by South Korea's intelligence agency.

North Korea has denied involvement in the killing and said it does not trust Malaysian police to conduct a proper investigation. Experts say only a sophisticated state actor could produce VX.

Kim Jong-nam was killed by a "weapon of mass destruction", police have said. But he may have been seen as a potential rival in North Korea's dynastic dictatorship, even though he had lived in exile for years.
