South Korea accuses North Korea of Kim Jong Nam assassination

South Korea accuses North Korea of Kim Jong Nam assassination

Officers have already arrested one North Korean, a Malaysian man and a Vietnamese woman, as well as an Indonesian woman.

On Sunday, the Deputy National Police Chief of Malaysia, Noor Rashid Ibrahim, said four other suspects were on the run.

If the arrested North Korean man, Jong-chol, was part of the assassination team, either directly or indirectly, police believe he would know the names of the three men who remain at large.

A man in his mid-40s, Kim Jong-nam was waiting for his flight home to Macau when, authorities say, he was set upon by two women. Kim Jong-nam previously begged his younger brother to spare his life, and he once told reporters that he felt like he was "living on borrowed time".

"This strongly suggests that Malaysia is trying to hide something which needs more time and deceive us and that they are colluding with hostile forces against us", Kang had said in his statement.

Malaysian authorities said Sunday they are cooperating with Interpol in the investigation.

Kim Jong Nam and Kim Jong Un are both sons of former North Korean leader Kim Jong Il, who died in late 2011, but they had different mothers, reports Reuters.

Trump will "rescind", "replace" travel ban: Ferguson says he's conceding defeat
Trump said, however, that Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly said no and that the order had to take effect immediately. Judge Leonie Brinkema said the travel restrictions improperly discriminated against Muslims.

"Considering North Korea has so far committed crimes against humanity and terror acts, we, together with the global community, are closely watching this brutal, reckless incident with serious concerns", Joon-hee said, according to AP.

Kim Jong-nam had spoken out against his family's dynastic control of North Korea.

Police were meanwhile questioning two female suspects who were arrested carrying Vietnamese and Indonesian passports, as well as a Malaysian man, as they attempted to shed light on the murder of Kim Jong-Nam. 'We have to send a sample to the chemistry department, we have to send a sample for toxicology tests, ' he said.

Asked about the theory that the women thought they were playing a prank, Noor Rashid said: "I think there is footage being released ... and you can interpret from the footage".

Cornelia Charito Siricord, director of forensics in the science ministry, told Reuters that an analysis was being carried out on samples taken from the body to help the police establish the cause of death. 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.

Kang Chol, North Korea's ambassador to Malaysia, said that Malaysia may be "trying to hide something" and that the autopsy was carried out "unilaterally and excluding our attendance".

A senior Malaysian official said the post mortem went ahead because North Korea did not submit a formal protest.
