Kim Jong-nam killing: Malaysia expels North Korean ambassador

Malaysia has expelled North Korea’s ambassador after he criticised its investigation into the killing of the North Korean leader’s half-brother.

Kang Chol must leave within 48 hours, Malaysia’s foreign ministry says.

It demanded an apology after the envoy said North Korea could not trust Malaysia’s handling of the inquiry, but says it did not receive one.

Kim Jong-nam, the half-brother of Kim Jong-un, died three weeks ago at a Kuala Lumpur airport.

Malaysia has not directly blamed North Korea for the attack, in which two women smeared the nerve agent VX on Mr Kim’s face. But there is widespread suspicion Pyongyang was responsible.
