North Korean embassy cars seen at KL hospital mortuary


KUALA LUMPUR: Three cars belonging to the North Korean embassy were seen in the compound of the mortuary at Kuala Lumpur Hospital (HKL).

At least two of the cars were parked inside the compound while the third was seen parked outside with a police patrol car parked behind it. The cars had diplomatic number plates, one of which was 28-35-DC.

The occupants of the cars were at the mortuary where a post-mortem on the body of Kim Jong-nam, the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, was being carried out.

Two more of the North Korean embassy cars were parked in the mortuary compound.

Jong-nam was believed to have been attacked by two women with liquid poison just before he was to take a flight to Macau at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA2) on Monday.

The 45-year-old was killed by the two female agents who splashed his face with a chemical at the airport’s departure hall at about 9am. The women later got into a cab and fled.

It is believed that Jong-nam arrived in Malaysia from Macau on Feb 6 and was about to leave when he was attacked.
