A man wanted by the police in connection with the murder of Kim Jong-Nam has reportedly been filmed playing snooker at the North Korean Embassy in Kuala Lumpur.

Asia One has reported that a minute-long clip, which was aired by Japan’s All-Nippon News Network (ANN News), showed a man resembling Kim Uk-il playing snooker with a few others on the second floor of the embassy.

Kim Uk-il, 37, is an employee with North Korean carrier Air Koryo, and a warrant for his arrest was issued by the police to shed light on Jong-Nam’s murder.

In addition to Uk-il, the police are also looking for two other suspects: Kwang Hyon-song, 44, the embassy’s second secretary who is believed to be hiding within the embassy building; and Ri Ji U, 30.

On March 16, Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar said that the police received the ‘Interpol Red Notice’ for the arrest of four other North Korean suspects who had already left the country. The Red Notice is the closest instrument to an international arrest warrant.
