DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. February 15, 2017, 12:22 PM (IDT)

A woman carrying a Vietnam travel document was arrested Wednesday by Malaysian police as part of their investigation into the assassination of the North Korean dictator’s estranged half-brother, Kim Jong-nam, at Kuala Lumpur airport. A post mortem is underway to determine if a poison injection by two women caused his death. Members of the North Korean embassy in Kuala Lumpur were present. Kim was attacked while preparing to fly home to Macau, where he has been living under Chinese protection.  

Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
