Malaysian police said on Sunday that they were looking for four more North Korean suspects in connection with the murder of the estranged half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

The four hold normal passports, not diplomatic passports. They police say they can not comment on whether they were linked to the North Korean government.

Two female suspects, one an Indonesian and the other carrying Vietnamese travel documents, have also been arrested, while a Malaysian man has been detained.

Kim Jong-nam died on Monday after being assaulted at Kuala Lumpur international airport, where he was catching a flight to Macau. South Korean and US officials have said he was assassinated by North Korean agents.

The police said they are trying to get Kim Jong-nam’s next of kin to assist with the investigation.
