Malaysia has summoned the North Korean ambassador for accusations he made over the investigation into the killing of Kim Jong-NamMore

Kim Jong-nam was the elder half-brother of dictator Kim Jong-un, said to have closer ties to China than his brother but largely uninterested in helping maintain his family's power over the communist nation.

He added that the laws of a country must be respected, saying this was practiced by Malaysia.

"We believe they are heavily involved".

Investigators have not stated Ri Jong Chol's role in the killing.

A still image from a CCTV footage appears to show a man purported to be Kim Jong-nam (circled in red) talking to airport staff, after being accosted by a woman in a white shirt, at KLIA2 on February 13, 2017.

He said that Malaysia did not have any hidden agenda with any foreign or neighbouring countries as the Malaysian police have also requested Interpol's cooperation regarding the case.

The Malaysian police have identified a total of nine people suspected of being linked to the killing.

The attack spiralled into diplomatic fury when Malaysia refused to hand over Mr Kim's corpse to North Korean diplomats after his death, and proceeded with an autopsy over the ambassador's objections.

Police chief Khalid Abu Bakar told reporters Wednesday that he hoped the North Korean Embassy would let the authorities interview the diplomat and airline worker quickly.

Relations between the two countries have become strained over the incident, with North Korea's ambassador to Malaysia saying he did not trust the police investigation and Kuala Lumpur recalling its envoy in Pyongyang.

This means that if you traveled at the speed of light (186,282 miles per second), it would take 40 years to reach the planets. After we are gone, if there is another part of the universe for life to carry on, it may be in the TRAPPIST-1 system.

At least one of the women arrested in connection with the death of Kim Jong Nam has stated that she was tricked into attacking him at an airport in Kuala Lumpur.

Speaking at their simply furnished house in a farming village in Nam Dinh province, Doan Van Thanh, 63, confirmed that Huong is his daughter but said he couldn't believe she would commit such a crime.

If a family member doesn't claim Kim Jong Nam's body, it is possible it will be released to the North Korean embassy and possibly returned to the North Korean capital city of Pyongyang.

"We have written to the ambassador to allow us to interview both of them".

Malaysian police say they know who orchestrated the attempted break-in, but wouldn't provide a name.

Police say those women - one from Vietnam, the other from Indonesia - applied a type of liquid to Kim's face and seemingly covered it with a cloth.

"Of course they knew (it was a poison attack)", he said.

For its part, Pyongyang insists that they had nothing to do with the murder, and neither do the two women seen on video surveillance carrying it out. The lady was moving away. towards the bathroom.

Reporters at the conference asked whether Kim Jong-nam's son, Kim Han-sol, had shown up to identify the body.

Police are looking for another seven North Korean suspects in connection with the attack, including the two announced Wednesday.
