CCTV footage of Kim Jong-nam death suggests another N. Korean suspect

CCTV footage of Kim Jong-nam death suggests another N. Korean suspect”

A woman arrested by Malaysian police is seen on CCTV at Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

An analysis of video footage frame by frame in the minutes before and after the attack on Mr Kim Jong Nam on Feb 13 found that seven male North Korean suspects had "surrounded" the victim, the New Straits Times reported on Saturday (March 18).

North Korea says the recent "incident" involving the death of leader Kim Jong-Un's half-brother was a plot by South Korea and the U.S. to bring the regime down.

Malaysia officially confirmed his identity on Friday, later revealing that authorities used his fingerprints and a DNA sample from one of his children to do so.

"I again wish to confirm that the body was that of Jong-nam's.it is definitely Jong-nam's", he told reporters at the Parliament lobby Thursday.

Sen. Cruz, R-Texas, said he plans to introduce a bill in Congress that will propose more pressure be placed on North Korea for the incident and for its nuclear weapons program.

Deputy national police Chief Noor Rashid Ibrahim said Kim's family will let the government decide what to do with his body.

IOC Chief says Pyeongchang stage is set for Winter Olympics 2018
Bach returned his focus to curbing excessive spending by hosts by welcoming budget cuts by organizers of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. The IOC executive board asked its four vice presidents to "explore changes" in Olympic bidding and report back in July.

Malaysia responded with similar restrictions, but has begun deporting North Koreans here who overstayed the social passes or violated their working visas.

"We believe they have since left for Pyongyang". North Korea is not a member. "Insya-Allah, as long as they take good care of our people, we will take care of their people", Utusan Online quoted him saying.

The four who are subject to the red notice - which is similar to an global arrest warrant - are believed to have made their way back to North Korea's capital Pyongyang.

A red notice is a request among Interpol's member states to locate and provisionally arrest a person, pending their extradition. About 315 North Koreans are in Malaysia. The two countries have also scrapped visa-free travel for each other's citizens.

In addition to the four men listed by Interpol, Malaysian police have identified three other North Koreans as suspects in the case, and who are believed to be hiding out in Pyongyang's embassy in Kuala Lumpur.

Jong-nam, who had been living under Beijing's protection in Macau and had been known to criticise his family's regime, was killed using the highly toxic VX nerve agent.
