The two North Korean suspects wanted in connection with the murder of Kim Jong-nam, the estranged half brother of North Korea’s Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un, are believed to be hiding out in the country’s embassy in Kuala Lumpur. Malaysian police believe that Hyon Kwang-song, a senior North Korean diplomat attached to the embassy in Malaysia and another suspect, Kim Uk-il, are seeking shelter at the embassy. Kim Jong Nam, 46, was killed at Kuala Lumpur International Airport on Feb. 13 with what police believe was a fast-acting poison, as he prepared to board a flight to Macau where he lived in exile with his family under the protection of Beijing.
