The Economic Times - - Around The World -

Seoul: North Korea’s state me­dia broke a 10-day si­lence on Thurs­day on the mur­der of Kim Jong-Un’s half brother, launch­ing a fe­ro­cious as­sault on Malaysia for “im­moral” han­dling of the case and for play­ing politics with the corpse. In its first com­ments on the air­port as­sas­si­na­tion of Kim Jong-Nam, KCNA said Malaysia bore re­spon­si­bil­ity for the death, and ac­cused it of con­spir­ing with South Korea. “Malaysia is obliged to hand his body to the DPRK (North Korea) side as it made an au­topsy and foren­sic ex­am­i­na­tion of it in an il­le­gal and im­moral man­ner”, the North’s Korean Jurists Com­mit­tee said, in com­ments car­ried by the state-run news agency. Malaysia has not re­leased the corpse “un­der the ab­surd pre­text” that it needs a DNA sam­ple from the dead man’s fam­ily, it said in a lengthy state­ment that never iden­ti­fied the vic­tim. AFP
