A North Korean national has been arrested over the killing of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's half-brother, Malaysian police say, according to BBC

The first North Korean to be arrested over Kim Jong-nam's death was named as Ri Jong Chol, 46.

An Indonesian woman, a Malaysian man and a woman with a Vietnamese passport were detained earlier.

Police believe poison was sprayed into Mr Kim's face as he waited to board a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Macau.
