    North Korea condemns Malaysia over Kim Jong-nam killing

    Feb.23, Seoul: North Korea has said Malaysia is responsible for the death of one of its citizens and is attempting to politicise the return of his body, media reports said.

    It does not name Kim Jong-nam, but the KCNA report appears to be state media's first reference to the death of the half-brother of North Korea's leader. Kim died after being poisoned at Kuala Lumpur airport and his body remains in a hospital mortuary.

    According to reports, several North Koreans are wanted in connection with his death. They include a senior official at the North Korean embassy in Kuala Lumpur as well as an employee of the state airline, Air Koryo.

    Four other North Koreans named earlier in the case are thought to have left Malaysia already, while another North Korean is in detention.

    On Wednesday, Malaysian police confirmed that Mr Kim died after two women - also in detention - wiped a toxin on his face while he was waiting for a flight to Macau.
