KUALA LUMPUR- Malaysia has requested Interpol to put an alert out for four North Korean suspects in the murder of Kim Jong Nam, Malaysia's police chief Khalid Abu Bakar said on Thursday.

The estranged half brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was killed in Kuala Lumpur's main airport last week, in what South Korean and US officials say was an assassination carried out by North Korean agents.

Khalid also said the police have sent an official request to the North Korean embassy in Malaysia to question the embassy's second secretary and an official from North Korea's national airline.
