PENANG: Two North Koreans wanted for questioning in connection with the murder of the North Korean leader's estranged half-brother, Kim Jong-nam, are hiding in the North Korean embassy in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia's police chief said on Tuesday.

"How much longer do they want to hide in the embassy? It is a matter of time before they come out," police chief Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar told reporters at a press conference.

Khalid said that North Korean authorities are not cooperating with the investigations.

Kim was killed at Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (klia2) on Feb 13 by assassins using VX nerve agent, classified by the United Nations as a weapon of mass destruction. -- REUTERS
