North Korean ambassador arrives at Malaysian foreign ministry: Reuters witness

KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - North Korea’s ambassador arrived on Monday for a meeting at the Malaysian foreign ministry, a Reuters witness said, as an investigation continues into the killing in Kuala Lumpur of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s half-brother.

Ambassador Kang Chol and Malaysian officials were not immediately available for comment.

North Korea said on Saturday that it would categorically reject Malaysia’s autopsy report on the death of Kim Jong Nam, and accused Malaysia of “colluding with outside forces”, in a veiled reference to rival nation South Korea.
