The Economic Times - - Around The World -

Kuala Lumpur: Malaysian po­lice said on Sun­day they be­lieve five North Kore­ans were in­volved in the mur­der of the half-brother of leader Kim Jong-Un, with four hav­ing fled the coun­try on the day of the killing. Seoul said the an­nounce­ment proved Py­ongyang was be­hind the mur­der of Kim Jong-Nam, who died after be­ing squirted in the face with an uniden­ti­fied liquid at Kuala Lumpur In­ter­na­tional Air­port on Mon­day. The case has also sparked a diplo­matic row be­tween Py­ongyang and Kuala Lumpur, after Malaysia re­jected de­mands quickly to hand the body over to the North. Four North Korean men were be­ing sought over the killing, Deputy Inspector-Gen­eral of Po­lice Noor Rashid Ibrahim told a press con­fer­ence, in ad­di­tion to their 46-year old com­pa­triot Ri Jong Chol who was ar­rested in Kuala Lumpur Satur­day.
