SEPANG, MALAYSIA - Malaysia police on Friday released a North Korean suspect held over the killing of Kim Jong-Nam, estranged half-brother of the North's leader.

Ri Jong Chol, who had been held after the killing of Kim on February 13, was expected to be taken to the immigration office to be prepared for deportation to North Korea, Malaysian officials said.

He was released due to insufficient evidence.

A Vietnamese woman and an Indonesian woman have been charged with murder. The police have also identified and are seeking seven other North Koreans in connection with the killing.
