Suspect in North Korea killing 'thought she was taking part in TV prank'

Source: The Guardian

An Indonesian woman arrested for suspected involvement in the killing of the North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un’s half-brother in Malaysia was duped into thinking she was part of a comedy show prank, Indonesia’s national police chief has said, citing information received from Malaysian authorities.

Tito Karnavian told reporters in Indonesia’s Aceh province that Siti Aisyah, 25, was paid to be involved in pranks.

He said she and another woman performed stunts which involved convincing men to close their eyes and then spraying them with water.

“Such an action was done three or four times and they were given a few dollars for it, and with the last target, Kim Jong-nam, allegedly there were dangerous materials in the sprayer,” Karnavian said. “She was not aware that it was an assassination attempt by alleged foreign agents.”

2. Reality TV Strikes Again.....

First the American Electorate gets duped by 45Pee and now assassinations brought to you courtesy of reality TV.

Wonder if this was a Mark Burnett production?

4. Whoa! What a terrifying but brilliant scheme. The mastermind duped the women...

by using water in the "rehearsal" runs but, unknown to the woman, switch to a poisonous liquid in the final run targeting Kim's brother.

IMO Kim is behind it.

6. ISIS uses a similar plan for victims - multiple dry runs before their actual executions.

Which explains the compliant behavior seen in the beheading videos.
