DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. February 15, 2017, 4:02 PM (IDT)

North Korean officials in Kuala Lumpur and the Malaysian authorities are wrestling over the body of the North Korean ruler’s estranged half-brother, who dropped dead after two women injected him at the airport. The officials including the ambassador demand the body’s handover, with no autopsy. The Malaysian police refuse pending a proper investigation of his death. The argument went on for four hours at the Kuala Lumpur hospital before the North Koreans angrily drove away. Local police promise a public statement on the investigation. A female suspect is held.

Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
