Malaysia to cancel visa-free entry for North Koreans over Kim Jong Nam's murder

Malaysia to cancel visa-free entry for North Koreans over Kim Jong Nam's murderMalaysia will deport a North Korean, held in connection with the death of Kim Jong Nam, and cancel visa-free entry for all North Koreans.

This is reported by Reuters.

The relationship between Malaysia and North Korea has soured since the estranged half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jung Un was murdered two weeks ago at Kuala Lumpur International Airport with a super toxic nerve agent.

South Korean intelligence and U.S. officials say the murder was an assassination organised by North Korean agents, though the only suspects charged in the case so far are an Indonesian woman and a Vietnamese woman.

Police are also holding one North Korean man and want to question seven others, including a senior official in the North Korean embassy in Kuala Lumpur.

But, the detained North Korean, Ri Jong Chol, will be deported on Friday as there is insufficient evidence to charge him, Malaysian Attorney General Mohamed Apandi Ali told Reuters in a text message on Thursday. It is unclear what Ri's suspected role was in the murder.
