KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - Malaysia has detained a second woman in connection with the murder of Kim Jong Nam, the half brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, state news agency Bernama reported on Thursday, citing the inspector general of police.

An official statement on the arrest would be issued later in the day, IGP Khalid Abu Bakar told Bernama.

Malaysian police on Wednesday detained a woman holding Vietnam travel papers and said they were looking for a "few" other foreign suspects in connection with the apparent assassination.
