    Malaysia recalls Pyongyang envoy after Kim Jong-nam killing

    Feb.20, Seoul: Malaysia has recalled its envoy to Pyongyang in an escalating row over the killing of Kim Jong-nam, the half-brother of North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un, reports said.

    According to media reprots, Kim Jong-nam died in mysterious circumstances last week at a Kuala Lumpur airport - police believe he was poisoned while waiting for a flight.

    Pyongyang's envoy to Malaysia was also summoned over earlier comments he made.

    Despite widespread speculation that North Korea was behind the killing, there has been no definitive evidence and Pyongyang has not issued an official statement on the issue so far.

    South Korea has publically accused the North of orchestrating the incident, saying on Monday that it was evidence of North Korean "terrorism getting bolder".
