Malaysia rejects North Korean demand to hand over body

Malaysia rejects North Korean demand to hand over bodyMalaysia Friday rejected Pyongyang’s demand that it hand over the body of Kim Jong-Nam, the assassinated half-brother of North Korea’s leader, saying it would only be released when his family provide DNA samples. Detectives in Kuala Lumpur are trying to get to the bottom of the cloak-and-dagger murder that South Korea says was carried out by poison-wielding female agents working for their secretive northern neighbour. North Korean ambassador Kang Chol said Pyongyang would reject the result of any Malaysian autopsy carried out without its permission and claimed the police were being pressured by hostile forces, notably South Korea.
