The moves underscored the dramatic deterioration in ties with one of North Korea's few friends outside China since the murder of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's estranged half-brother at Kuala Lumpur International Airport on Feb. 13. Malaysia says the assassins used VX nerve agent, a chemical listed by the United Nations as a weapon of mass destruction. Police have identified eight North Koreans wanted in connection with the murder, including two of the three believed to be hiding in the embassy - a senior North Korean diplomat and a state airline employee. The only people charged so far are a Vietnamese woman and an Indonesian woman, accused of smearing the victim's face with VX. He died within 20 minutes. North Korea's foreign ministry issued a temporary ban on Malaysians leaving the country, "until the incident that happened in Malaysia is properly solved," state-run Korea Central News Agency said. "In this period the diplomats and citizens of Malaysia may work and live normally under the same conditions and circumstances as before." HOSTAGE-TAKING Najib denounced the travel ban in a statement as an "abhorrent act" that was in "total disregard of all international law and diplomatic norms".
