    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.

    Al Jazeera’s Florence Looi reports from Kuala Lumpur.
