An Indonesian suspect in the assassination of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un’s half-brother says she was paid the equivalent of $117 to help apply a baby oil-like liquid to his face.

Siti Aisyah insisted to an Indonesian diplomat who met her in jail that she believed she was taking part in a prank.

Malaysian police have revealed that nerve agent, which is classified as a chemical weapon under international laws, was dabbed on the eyes of 46-year-old Kim Jong-nam. He sought medical help after the attack at Kuala Lumpur airport on February 13 but died shortly afterwards on the way to hospital.

Last week police rejected reports that 25-year-old Ms Siti and 28 year-old Vietnamese Doan Thi Huong believed they were taking part in the television show, Just for Laughs, and said they repeatedly trained for the act.

But Andreano Erwin, the deputy chief of Indonesia’s embassy in Kuala Lumpur, said Ms Siti told him during a 30-minute meeting that she did not know the liquid on her hands was the world’s most potent nerve agent.

“She just said she was given some kind of oil, like baby oil,” Mr Erwin told reporters.

“She didn’t know about the poison – that is the answer from her.”

According to Mr Erwin, Ms Siti said the men who asked her to carry out the act had names like ‘James’ and ‘Chang.

She thought they were Japanese or Korean.

CCTV cameras captured one of the women who confronted Mr Kim walking hurriedly away, and slightly turning back to look at him. She had been wearing a distinctive white “LOL” shirt.
