A hive of activity at North Korean embassy

KUALA LUMPUR: The bungalow which houses the North Korean embassy here was a hive of activity as the Malaysian government ordered all its diplomatic staff and dependants to leave the country within 48 hours.

At least four black cars with diplomatic number plates were seen entering and leaving the premises at Jalan Batai in Damansara Heights yesterday.

At about 7.30pm, a police patrol car stopped in front of the embassy and made a routine check.

An armed policeman was then seen approaching the gate and is believed to have retrieved a document from the mailbox.

He refused to take questions and instead asked the media to keep a safe distance.

Moments later, an unknown female individual was seen peeking from the balcony and looking towards members of the media who had been camped outside since early yesterday morning.

Members of the media again tried to get her attention but to no avail.

At 7.50pm, a black vehicle with a diplomatic number plate was seen entering the embassy.
