3. S.Korea warns of more provocations from North

South Korea's Prime Minister Hwang Kyo-ahn has warned of possible further provocations by Pyongyang, following the killing of Kim Jong Nam, the half-brother of North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un.

The acting president held a National Security Council meeting on Monday.

Hwang said the attack was carried out in public at an airport in the Malaysian capital, Kuala Lumpur. He called the incident an unacceptable inhumane criminal act.

He also said the attack shows Pyongyang's recklessness and brutality that will use any means to stay in power.

Hwang added his country should prepare against possible provocations by the North to divert international attention. He instructed the military to be on alert.
