Report: Malaysia tapping China for help to ID Kim Jong-nam’s body

KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 24—  Malaysia has sought for assistance from the Chinese government to contact Kim Jong-nam’s family to identify his body, The Telegraph reported citing an unnamed senior security source.

The news report said that the move is likely to escalate tensions between Putrajaya and Pyongyang, following the assassination of Jong-nam, the estranged half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

To date, North Korea as refused to confirm Jung-nam as the kin of Jong-un.

“While the North Korean embassy in Malaysia is yet to assist Malaysia to contact the Kim Chol’s next of kin, Malaysia police have no other option but to go through the proper channel to request that the China government assists in the seeking of Kim Chol’s next of kin,” the source reportedly said.

Jong-nam was travelling on a passport bearing the name “Kim Chol”. Although the identification is still pending DNA comparisons, Malaysia previously confirmed that the dead man was the brother to the North Korean leader.

Jong-nam was attacked by two women at KL International Airport 2 (KLIA2) on February 13 while waiting for a flight to Macau. He died on the way to hospital.

Police have so far arrested four people including three foreigners over the killing.

North Korea continues to accuse Malaysia of conspiracy over the latter’s investigation into Jong-nam’s death. It also tried to block his autopsy here and claim his body ahead of his family.
