North Korea and Malaysia end diplomatic row

    North Korea and Malaysia end diplomatic row

    Mar 31, Kuala Lumpur: Nine Malaysians who were detained in North Korea after a diplomatic row broke out between the two nations, have arrived home on Friday.

    The Malay nationals were allowed to go home after  North Korea and Malaysia apparently struck a deal to end the quarrel over last month's killing of Kim Jong-nam in Kuala Lumpur, that had resulted in both countries banning each other's citizens from leaving.

    Malaysia has also allowed North Koreans to leave and released Mr Kim's body.  Kim was the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. The late Kim Jong-il's eldest son is thought to have fled North Korea after being passed over for the leadership.

    The nine Malaysian nationals were met by their relatives and a large media contingent at Kuala Lumpur airport early on Friday.
