China says body of North Korean returned to North Korea

The body of a North Korean citizen killed in Malaysia was returned to North Korea on Friday, China's Foreign Ministry said, in reference to the estranged half-brother of North Korea's leader who was murdered in Kuala Lumpur in February.
"Relevant" North Korean citizens also returned to North Korea, ministry spokesman Lu Kang told a daily news briefing, without giving details.
Kim Jong Nam was the elder half-brother of North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un, and had been living in exile with his family in the Chinese territory of Macau for several years.
