Suspects questioned and autopsy results to come in Kim Jong-nam murder investigation Updated: 2017-02-17 08:21:18 KST

Turning now to the latest on the murder mystery entrancing the world with the sheer brazenness of the killing..
So far three arrests have been made in the murder of Kim Jong-nam, the half-brother of North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un.
Kim Jong-nam is suspected to have been poisoned at Kuala Lumpur International Airport on Monday morning.
The suspects in detention are two women in their twenties, one holding a Vietnamese passport and the other carrying an Indonesian one.
Another Malaysian male has been detained.
He is believed to be the boyfriend of the Indonesian woman, but he's not thought to be involved in the murder.
In the latest twist in this already bizarre case, the two women have reportedly claimed that they were approached by a group of men and asked to take part in a TV show prank.
They said they did not know who the victim was or that he would die.
The police have said they are still looking for four more male suspects.
Meanwhile, the autopsy on Kim Jong-nam's body has been completed, but the results are not expected to come out until the weekend.
Malaysian authorities have also said they will hand the body to North Korea unless it is claimed by the next-of-kin.
