Malaysia says Kim Jong Nam's body released to North Korea

Najib also announced that nine Malaysians barred from leaving North Korea after diplomatic ties worsened "have now been allowed to return to Malaysia". "Malaysian time, and will land in Kuala Lumpur tomorrow around 5 a.m.", the statement said, adding that Malaysia will now allow North Koreans to leave Malaysia.

Najib said an autopsy had been completed and the victim's family has formally asked that the body be returned to North Korea.

Kim was assassinated at Kuala Lumpur International Airport on February 13 before his scheduled departure for Macau.

- February 24: Malaysia says VX nerve agent, classified by the United Nations as a weapon of mass destruction, was the poison used to kill Kim Jong-Nam.

Two women - one Vietnamese woman and one Indonesian, who claim they thought they were involved in a prank - have been charged with killing Mr Kim.

Oh Ei Sun, an adjunct senior fellow with Singapore's Rajaratnam School of International Studies, said it was not a surprise that North Korea came out well in the negotiations. North Korea's official name is the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

Both countries made a decision to patch up their frayed ties as they reaffirmed the importance of their relations which were established in 1973, it added.

Custody of the body had been a flashpoint as relations between Malaysia and North Korea deteriorated sharply.

Vin Diesel on Paul Walker: We don't want to let him down
With the eighth on the way and two more planned sequels after that, it seems like the Fast & Furious franchise will never end. Diesel, who is one of the new film's producers, was singled out as the source of Johnson's social media outburst.

Malaysia imposed a travel ban on North Koreans leaving the South-east Asian country in a tit-for-tat move after Pyongyang barred Malaysians from leaving its borders.

The agreement was reached after recent talks between North Korea and Malaysia in the capital, Kuala Lumpur, it added.

Relations between Malaysia and North Korea have been badly frayed by the murder of the North Korean leader's half brother at Kuala Lumpur's airport. Authorities also say they are looking for seven North Koreans.

The police error had a silver lining.

North Korea also released a statement which said both countries managed to "resolve issues arising from the death of a DPRK national" in Malaysia at a meeting in Kuala Lumpur.

Three of the four arrived in Malaysia before Kim did. After the mix-up was realized, North Korea's diplomatic mission in Kuala Lumpur was informed on the day of the murder, the sources said. A woman has been arrested in connection with his murder, Malaysian police said. This was then leaked to the South Korean media.

North Korean authorities were quick to attack the Malaysian investigation, with their ambassador Kang Chol accusing the country of being "in collusion with South Korea" and ignoring their requests for an immediate release of the body.

"China is the only one that can control Kim Jong-un, this insane fat kid that's running North Korea", McCain told MSNBC's Greta Van Susteren last week.
