Kuala Lumpur [Malaysia], Feb. 22 (ANI): Stating that attempts were made to break into the morgue in which the body of the estranged half brother of Kim Jong Un, Kim Jong Nam, was kept, the investigating Malaysian police has demanded to question a senior North Korean diplomat. The demand was put forward by Police Chief Khalid Abu Bakar. Khalid also said that three more names were added to the previously announced list of suspects. One is Hyon Kwang Song, the second secretary of the North Korean embassy in Kuala Lumpur. The others include Kim Uk II, of Air Koryo, and a North Korean Ri Ju U. Bakar said they had written to the North Korean ambassador to Malaysia asking him to allow the police to interview the suspects, who are still believed to be in Malaysia. Kim Jong-nam was allegedly poisoned last week at an airport in the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur. Two women, one Indonesian and one Vietnamese, were among the first to be arrested. The Indonesian, named as Siti Aisyah, is said to have told Malaysian police that she had been paid to perform what she thought was a prank. (ANI)
