PUTRAJAYA — March 16, 2017: Malaysian police has obtained the Interpol red notice for the arrest of four North Koreans in connection with the murder of Kim Jong-nam on February 13.

“We have obtained the notice and we are hoping to get them through Interpol,” said Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar today.

The notice is the closest instrument to an international arrest warrant in use today.

Jong-nam, the estranged half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, was killed by two foreign women while waiting for a flight to Macau.

Khalid said the four suspects are believed to be in Pyongyang. They were at KL International Airport 2 during the murder. — Bernama
