Kim's body: 'KL has consent from family'

Interpol has issued a "red notice" for four North Koreans wanted in connection with the killing of the half-brother of North Korea's leader. He didn't say when and where the DNA sample was taken.

Malaysia has said it will deport 50 North Koreans who are in the country with expired visas.

Investigators "confirmed the identity of the body as Kim Jong-nam based on the sample obtained from his child", Malaysian Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi announced.

Two women - one Vietnamese and one Indonesian - have been arrested and charged with the murder. No family member has come forward to claim the body.

The killing sparked a dramatic deterioration in the relationship between North Korea and Malaysia, which once had relatively strong ties.

The decision to hold Kim Jong Nam's body - and conduct an autopsy - angered the North Koreans. Authorities said this was done using DNA from one of his children, although they did not say which one.

He said two decades of expensive diplomatic efforts has failed to achieve the goal of de-nuclearising Pyongyang and something needed to be done before it was too late.

US Airlines Cancel 5400 Flights In Northeast Winter Storm
Meanwhile, American Airlines , JetBlue , and United Airlines have all canceled more than 500 flights apiece, according to the AP. United and American Airlines are offering date changes to passengers with imminent bookings to and from the north-east US.

Meanwhile, a Malaysian police source and a local newspaper said Wednesday that police used jewellery worn by the victim as secondary evidence to identify the dead man.

Thae Yong-ho, a former North Korean diplomat who defected to Seoul past year, said that a set of global sanctions put a severe strain on Kim Jong-un's policy enforcement, including the construction of Ryomyong Street.

He will now travel to South Korea, where he aims to reassure concerned officials, and China, where he will pressure leaders to do more, later in the week. They are thought to be in North Korea.

The deputy prime minister also said that the Malaysian government has no intention of interfering with North Korean domestic affairs, but the North should ask itself whether it is respecting the global organizations' decisions and resolutions and its obligations under them.

North Korea has never confirmed the dead man's identity, but has denounced the Malaysian investigation as an attempt to smear it. Last Tuesday, North Korea blocked all Malaysians from leaving the country until a "fair settlement" of the case is reached.

North Korea then banned nine Malaysians - three diplomats and their six family members - from leaving the country, in what Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak described as taking Malaysians "hostage".
