Malaysian police are seeking two Indonesian women they want to testify at the trial of those accused of killing Kim Jong-nam, the half-brother of North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un.
Local media named the potential witnesses as Raisa Rinda Salma, 24, and Dessy Meyrisinta, 33.
Kim Jong-nam died at Kuala Lumpur airport in February 2017, after toxic VX nerve agent was rubbed on his face.
Two women are being tried for his murder.
They are Siti Aisyah from Indonesia and Doan Thi Houng from Vietnam.
Both have pleaded not guilty, saying they thought they were carrying out a prank for a reality TV show, and did not know the colourless, odourless VX was harmful.
Police have urged anyone who knows the two new named witnesses to contact Sepang district police.
