The half-brother of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, died after being squirted with poison at Kuala Lumpur airport last week.

But Malaysian authorities have said the women are lying and knew they were administering a poison.
"Yes, the two female suspects knew that the substance they had were toxic," he said.
"We don't know what kind of chemical was used.
