Another man named in fatal attack against Kim Jong Nam

They also voiced concerns over the use of VX nerve agent for the killing of Kim Jong-nam, half brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Malaysia on February 13. Two women smeared what Malaysian authorities say was VX nerve agent on his face.

The confederation said Wednesday a new date of June 8 has been set and it wants North Korea to find a "neutral venue" for the match by April 14, in the event diplomatic relations have not returned to normal.

No next of kin has come forward to claim the body.

Pyongyang - which insists Jong Nam likely died of a heart attack - has never confirmed the identity of the man, who was carrying a passport bearing the name of Kim Chol during the attack at Kuala Lumpur's airport. "Yes, we have preserved the body as it is kept in the morgue and there has been fear of decay", Zahid told reporters at the Parliament lobby yesterday.

The comparable figure showed an upward trend in recent years with 36 in 2010, 39 in 2014 and 41 in 2016, but declined to 39 as Malaysia and Singapore recently revoked visa-free benefits for North Koreans this year, Radio Free Asia said, citing Henley & Partners's 2017 Visa Restrictions Index. Last Tuesday, North Korea blocked all Malaysians from leaving the country until a "fair settlement" of the case is reached.

The bill will include incentives for states to adopt such requirements, but it's not yet clear what those incentives are. And some of the most conservative Republicans , those in the Freedom Caucus, remain unpersuaded.

Kim Jong Nam had two wives and children living separately in Beijing and Macau, according to South Korea's intelligence agency.

North Korea is preventing three Malaysian diplomats and their six family members from leaving the country, sparking tit-for-tat action by Malaysia. Zahid has said about 315 North Koreans remain in the country with valid visas. He had spoken out publicly against his family's dynastic control of the isolated, nuclear-armed North Korea.

The workers were employed in mines and construction sites in the state. He accused the regime of "holding our citizens hostage" before deciding Malaysia would do the same with North Koreans.

Police said last week they had confirmed the victim was Kim Jong Nam, but refused to say how.

North Korea on Monday sought to shift the blame for Kim's death to the United States and South Korea.
