Arrest warrant issued for another N. Korea man over Kim attack: report

KUALA LUMPUR-- An arrest warrant has been issued for another North Korean man over the Feb. 13 murder of the estranged half-brother of North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un, Malaysian state-run news agency Bernama said Friday.

The man is Kim Uk Il, an employee of North Korea's national carrier Air Koryo, Malaysia's national police chief Khalid Abu Bakar was quoted as saying by Bernama.

The move came after Malaysian police earlier in the day released the only North Korean man who had been arrested in connection with the fatal poisoning of Kim Jong Nam, citing lack of sufficient evidence with which to charge him.
