Malaysia to expels North Korea ambassador

KUALA LUMPUR: (APP) Malaysia said Saturday it would expel the North Korean ambassador, in a deepening diplomatic row over the assassination of the half-brother of Pyongyang's leader at Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

"The ambassador has been declared persona non grata," Malaysia's foreign ministry said in a statement, adding it had demanded but not received an apology over Pyongyang's attack on its investigation of the case.
