Security has been tightened at all entry points in the country following the killing of Kim Jong-nam, the estranged elder half-brother of North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, on Monday.

Selangor Police chief Datuk Abdul Samah Mat said the measures include tighter surveillance at passenger entry-exit points at the KL International Airport (KLIA) and klia2.

This is to prevent other suspects in the case from fleeing the country, he said.

Abdul Samah added that the authorities are looking at the case from all angles, including trying to find out if others were involved. However, he refused to comment when asked if there is a possibility that other suspects are still in the country, but said police are still investigating.

Meanwhile, a check at klia2 found the terminal busy, with local and foreign travellers moving under the watchful eyes of security personnel.

A security officer, when approached, said the killing had not disrupted procedures as security at the terminal was constantly monitored.

“Every passenger is thoroughly checked before being allowed to go through the departure point, whether for domestic or international flights,” he said.
