North Korea tests new rocket engine: State media

Mr Kim was allegedly murdered using the VX nerve agent - a chemical toxin classified as a weapon of mass destruction - at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 on Feb 13.

The new rocket marked the "new birth of the Juche-based rocket industry" state-run news agency KCNA reported, adding that it would help consolidate the country's technological foundation in "world-level" satellite delivery capability. The daily says the man is believed to be Chang Nam-un, a man in his mid-30s, and it says he's believed to have played a significant role in Kim Jong-nam's murder. "Obviously we have a very bad relationship with them, we're not pals, [but] to be able to exert influence on North Korea.is to encourage our friends in the region who I think are rightfully concerned with North Korea as well to step up".

"We have obtained the red notice for the four North Korean men who were at the airport during the incident", Khalid told journalists in Putrajaya.

Police have also arrested the boyfriend of the Indonesian woman identified as Siti Aisyah, born in 1992 in Serang, Indonesia.

"It's being able to have those folks that are closer to the north", he said.

The source added that if the government decides to send the remains to North Korea soon, the body could be taken there before decomposition sets in. The unnamed expert quoted by NST said this was to indicate that "the job was done".

Trump administration proposes cuts that would slash partial Meals on Wheels funding
The next step in the budget approval process is for it to go to different congressional committees in both the House and Senate. It remains to be seen if they'll gut the EPA as much as Trump wishes. "I think that is about as compassionate as you can get".

NORTH Korean diplomat Pak Myong Ho blamed a "despicable and extremely dangerous" plot by the US and South Korea yesterday for the killing of Kim Jong Nam in Malaysia.

An Interpol red notice is effectively an worldwide arrest warrant.

On Wednesday, Zahid, the deputy PM, said Malaysia was "looking at all possibilities", including handing over Kim's body to North Korea in exchange for nine Malaysian citizens trapped in Pyongyang because of the exit ban.

He was commenting on whether Mr Kim Jong-nam's family had sought to claim the deceased's body following the revelation that a family member had handed over DNA samples for the process of identification.

President Donald Trump, meanwhile, tweeted that North Korea was "behaving very badly".
