Looks like the fat doofus running North Korea is determined to get rid of all his friends.

If you build it, they will come, and if you go there, you have to stay there. Why do people continue to go to NK for ANY reason? Stop sending money, investing, going there, and being used.

They're not allowing innocent Malaysian citizens to leave? Sorry, but this is nothing short of state-sponsored terrorism. This dumb kid really has no idea what he's doing. He's rushing toward an armed conflict with a number of asian nations. China really needs to step in and put that korean bulldog on a short leash. If they don't, the region will erupt into conflict and it will be China's fault for not reigning in Kim Song Buta .

What the article fails to mention ( proving a wide variety of news sources are a good thing) is the NKDP consulate is surrounded as its believed the agents involved in the (weapon of mass destruction) death of a portly man are hiding inside...have been seen inside. Malaysia wants to know who is inside and their official position.

WOW, just WOW!!

NK you have really stepped in it this time! I wonder if this could be considered an act of war, holding Malaysians hostage in NK........NOT GOOD!!

Its long time for China to put the screws to NK, no more messing around!! If China doesn't want to set the tone with what NK does than maybe it will soon be the rest of the world that needs to set the tone!

Come on China you have been playing with NK for your own selfish ""needs"" for far too many decades now, time to do whats right before someone decides for YOU!

"this is nothing short of state-sponsored terrorism"

It was when they used chemical weapons on another country's soil, or should it be called an act of war.

Forcing people to stay in NK is like a crime against humanity

What Malaysians are in NK in the first place? Maybe news reporters and perhaps a diplomat, but I wonder if there are actually Malaysians living there at all.

He will end up sending them to the camps. and Malaysia can do NOTHING.

He Dear Fatty has over 200,000 of his brothers and sisters in a camps, a few 100 extra is not going to blow the budget. But put 1 American in one and it's on.

Fat-Un can do whatever he wants and no one would do anything beyond declaring "condemnation". It's a Mexican standoff.

Only country NK could depends selling coals was China. But China stopped to buy coal. Kim may be thinking China will buy next year, Xi just said Chinese skies are not blue because coal burning resulted smog cover sky. So he will ban coals. I think Xi means no more buying coals from N Korea. Notice Iranian oil export increased rapidly. China wants to stop Kim. by financial pressure. Malaysia is now against NK. It is isolated from the other countries ..

I had a feeling that fat kid was going to do this. Now he wants leverage of some sort? This guy really needs to go and fast!

Err, ex presidents visited to gain their release, use google more.

Apparently there are only 11 Malaysians in NK but there are about 1000 North Koreans in Malaysia so Kim might be having a D'oh moment!

7 ( +7 / -0 )

Perhaps North Korea is thinking of asking a "swap" of "hostages"? The Malaysians for the assassins of Kim Jong Nam? For them the sooner the assassins are silenced and gone the better.

This should surprise no one as North Korea actually kidnapped Japanese nationals and took them back to North Korea.
