KUALA LUMPUR - Malaysia's police chief said on Tuesday police were aware of two North Korea-linked companies that were identified in a Reuters report as firms operating an arms business in the Southeast Asian country.

Khalid Abu Bakar said the two companies, International Global System and International Golden Services, were in the process of being "struck off".

"We have also taken all necessary actions to comply with international regulations with regards to related sanctions," he said in a statement.

Reuters reported on Monday that the North Korean spy agency ran an arms operation out of Malaysia.
