Interpol Lists Four North Koreans Wanted in Kim Murder: Malaysian Police

A woman arrested by Malaysian police is seen on CCTV at Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

Referring to North Korea's formal name, the Democratic People's Republic of North Korea (DPRK), diplomat Pak Myong Ho told reporters: "The recent incident that occurred in Malaysia was clearly a political scheme by the US and South Korea aimed at hurting the DPRK's reputation and overthrowing the DPRK regime".

Representative Ted Poe said, "North Korea is a terror state that has launched cyber-attacks on US companies, sold weapons to terrorist groups, murdered hundreds of innocent people, both within North Korea and overseas, whom are viewed as a threat to the regime".

At the time of the killing, Kim was carrying a diplomatic passport bearing another name, but Malaysian authorities said on Wednesday Kim Jong-nam's identity had been confirmed using DNA samples taken from one of his children.

"I again wish to confirm that the body was that of Jong-nam' is definitely Jong-nam's", he told reporters at the Parliament lobby Thursday.

North Korea has blocked all Malaysians from leaving the country until a "fair settlement" of the case is reached.

Malaysian officials said yesterday that the family of Kim Jong Nam had consented to Kuala Lumpur deciding what to do with his body.

The three other North Korean suspects are hiding in the country's embassy in Malaysia, Malaysian police say.
