Malaysians 'banned from leaving North Korea'

North Korea has said it is banning any Malaysians currently in its country from leaving, in a growing diplomatic row over the killing of Kim Jong-nam.

The state news agency KCNA said the ban would stay in place "until the incident that happened in Malaysia is properly solved".

Mr Kim, the estranged half-brother of the North Korean leader, was killed with a chemical nerve agent in Malaysia last month.

North Korea has denied it was to blame.
