The front gate of the North Korean Embassy, located in the upscale Damansara Heights, just outside downtown Kuala Lumpur, has become a magnet for onlookers to snap pictures. They join journalists who have parked themselves there after the deadly attack on Mr Kim Jong Nam, half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, on Feb 13. Another popular spot for selfie hunters is the area near the self check-in kiosks at Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2, where two women allegedly wiped poison on the face of Mr Kim, who died on the way to hospital.
