KUALA LUMPUR (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - Three cars belonging to the North Korean embassy were seen in the compound of the mortuary at Kuala Lumpur Hospital (HKL) on Wednesday (Feb 15).

At least two of the cars were parked inside the compound while the third was seen parked outside with a police patrol car parked behind it. The cars had diplomatic number plates.

The occupants of the cars were at the mortuary where a post-mortem on the body of Kim Jong Nam, the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, was being carried out.

Jong Nam was believed to have been attacked by two women with liquid poison just before he was to take a flight to Macau at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA2) on Monday.
