DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. March 7, 2017, 9:02 AM (IDT)

Malaysia’s prime minister accused North Korea of “effectively holding our citizens hostage” Tuesday, after the Kim regime banned all Malaysians in North Korea from leaving the country, the latest escalation in tensions following the assassination of the North Korean leader’s half brother, Kim Jong Nam. Kuala Lumpur retaliated by prohibiting North Korean embassy staff from leaving and cordoning off the embassy. Malaysian police have implicated three North Koreans still in the country as being involved in the assasination.They include a diplomat and an employee of the North Korean state airline and all three are believed to be hiding out in the embassy.

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.
