Interpol 'red notice' on Kim Jong-nam murder suspects

North Korea has questioned the Malaysian investigation into the murder and refused to acknowledge that the man murdered is Kim Jong-nam.

Enlisted the assassination of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un's own half-brother out of the country.

"I would like to confirm that the DNA has been taken and brought to Malaysia and it is indeed Kim Jong Nam".

Despite that, some opine that the North Korean authorities are propagandizing the development of markets as Kim's achievements.

Cruz criticized a US decision to remove North Korea from a list of state sponsors of terrorism, a move, he said, that was prompted by hopes the country would in turn give up its nuclear program.

Therefore, Kim is virtually tolerating marketization, he added.

In a major breakthrough in the case, police have obtained descriptions of the men from two young women, one from Vietnam and the other Indonesia, who were allegedly recruited to poison 46-year-old Mr Kim in the departure hall of Kuala Lumpur International Airport's low cost terminal on Monday.

Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi confirmed on Wednesday that Mr Kim Jong Nam's body had been identified based on DNA samples provided by a child of the deceased.

Meanwhile, Malaysia's deputy police chief indicated Thursday that Kim's family had given its approval to Malaysian authorities to decide what to do with his embalmed remains, but the official did not make it clear whether the family wanted to take possession of the body. Malaysia then barred North Koreans from exiting its soil.

The latest indicators, the U.S. officials told CNN, is that North Korea has moved some launch equipment that is associated with an intercontinental ballistic missile launch, believing that Washington can not track them there. The two countries have also scrapped visa-free travel for each other's citizens.

Khalid did not confirm Noor Rashid's comments.

Sen. Cruz, R-Texas, said he plans to introduce a bill in Congress that will propose more pressure be placed on North Korea for the incident and for its nuclear weapons program.

Jong-nam, who had been living under Beijing's protection in Macau and had been known to criticise his family's regime, was killed using the highly toxic VX nerve agent.
