Computers dumped outside N Korea embassy
Several items of computer equipment have been among other items dumped outside the North Korean embassy in Kuala Lumpur, which has since come under the media spotlight following the murder case of Kim Jong-nam.
A check by Bernama revealed that three unserviceable laptops and a central processing unit (CPU) were found along with other garbage such as bottles of alcoholic beverages, fast food containers and flower stands.
However, it could not be ascertained as to when exactly the items were placed outside the embassy nor who placed them there.
The local and foreign media are still camping outside the two-storey neo-colonial house in Bukit Damansara, while several police personnel had been spotted manning the area.
The tense bilateral ties between Malaysia and North Korea came about after the murder of Jong-nam, the estranged half-brother of the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, at KL International Airport 2 (KLIA2) on Feb 13 before he was to depart by flight to Macau.
He had entered the country using a passport bearing the name of Kim Chol and was attacked by two women who swiped his face with their hands containing a chemical substance, which was later identified as VX nerve agent.
He died on the way to the Putrajaya Hospital.
The women had been charged with murder on March 1.
