North Korea objects to Malaysian post mortem on ruler’s brother

North Korean officials in Kuala Lumpur and the Malaysian authorities are wrestling over the body of the North Korean ruler’s estranged half-brother, who dropped dead after two women injected him at the airport. The officials including the ambassador demand the body’s handover, with no autopsy. The Malaysian police refuse pending a proper investigation of his death. The argument went on for four hours at the Kuala Lumpur hospital before the North Koreans angrily drove away. Local police promise a public statement on the investigation. A female suspect is held.
