    Malaysia’s government is ending a visa-free agreement with North Korea citing national security after the murder of the estranged half-brother of leader Kim Jong-un.

    Kim Jong-nam died after being poisoned with the VX nerve agent at Kuala Lumpur’s airport more than two weeks ago. Relations have soured ever since.
