Malaysian police say an investigation is underway into the gunning down of a Palestinian man and that security is being beefed up in the country following recent high-profile assassinations.

Gaza's ruling Hamas militant group said Fadi al-Batsh was an important member of the group and accused Israel of being behind his killing early on Saturday in Kuala Lumpur.

His death comes just over a year after the brazen assassination of the estranged half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at Kuala Lumpur's international airport.

Two Southeast Asian women have pleaded not guilty to killing Kim Jong Nam by smearing a nerve agent on his face in a plot that prosecutors say was masterminded by North Korean agents.
