Two women are suspected of having attacked the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's half-brother Kim Jong-nam at the international airport in Kuala Lumpur.
One of the women, an Indonesian citizen, has in interviews said that she thought it was all about participation in a joke as part of a reality show on television.
She received $90 to perform the action, said Indonesia's ambassador to Malaysia, Andriano Erwin, on Saturday.
The woman is named as 25-year-old Siti Aisyah. She is in custody in Kuala Lumpur.
According to Malaysian police, Aisyah inflicted the nerve agent VX in Kim Jong-nam's face, among other passengers at the airport on 13 February. Security cameras show her with another woman.
The other woman is identified as a Vietnamese citizen and is also in police custody.
Two other people are also detained in the case, and Malaysian police want to interrogate two additional people - an employee at the North Korean embassy in Kuala Lumpur and an employee of a North Korean airline.
45-year-old Kim Jong-nam died shortly after the poison attack. VX is a nerve agent which is on the UN list of weapons of mass destruction. One-third of a drop is enough to kill a human.
