Ri Jong-Chol is among eight North Koreans suspected of involvement in the dramatic killing of Kim, the half-brother of the reclusive nation's leader, who was poisoned with a banned nerve agent at Kuala Lumpur International Airport.Malaysia's attorney general has announced there was insufficient evidence to charge 47-year-old Ri and that he would be deported Friday.Ri's release came two days after two women -- one Vietnamese and one Indonesian -- were charged with murdering Kim.Seven other North Koreans are wanted in connection with the killing, including a diplomat and an airline employee who are believed to be in Malaysia.Four others are thought to have fled to Pyongyang on the day of the murder.North Korea, which has not acknowledged the dead man's identity, has vehemently protested the investigation, saying Malaysia is in cahoots with its enemies.
