Kim Jong-nam is attacked by two assailants as he stands by the airport’s self check-in counter. Within five seconds, one attacker distracted Kim by standing in front of him while the other locked him in a chokehold and administered the poison, according to Malaysian newspaper the New Straits Times

CCTV footage shows one of the attackers walking briskly down an escalator to a taxi stand. She apparently discards a single black glove she was wearing on one hand before leaving the airport in a taxi
