Newsline: Laptops, desktop dumped outside North Korean embassy in Kuala Lumpur

A few pieces of computer hardware were dumped outside the North Korean embassy this morning. Three laptops and a desktop computer found outside the embassy building, in Jalan Batai, Kuala Lumpur, were however, found to have been stripped of their hard disk drives. The laptops and desktop looked damaged, and were believed to have been thrown out with some flowers, flower stands, a speaker and other usual household rubbish during the early morning hours today. Meanwhile, police continue to monitor the embassy where they believe two suspects linked to the killing of Kim Jong Nam, who is the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, are in hiding. The two men were previously named by Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar as being the embassy’s second secretary Hyon Kwang Song, 44, and Air Koryo employee Kim Uk Il, 37. The police have since issued a war­rant of ar­rest for Uk-il and a let­ter re­quest­ing Hyon’s cooper­a­tion was sent through Wisma Pu­tra and de­liv­ered to the em­bassy. Last week, Khalid also said there is a third suspect, whose name is Ri Ji U, but who goes by the alias James. There is little known about him other than that he was the one who had first approached the two women charged with the murder of Jong Nam on Feb 13.
