Malaysia: VX Nerve Agent Killed North Korea's Kim

This followed the undiplomatic remarks made by North Korean ambassador to Malaysia, Kang Chol, recently, accusing Malaysia of working together with Pyongyang's enemies over the murder of Kim Jong-nam, the estranged elder half brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, on Feb 13 at Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (klia2).

After the attack upon Kim Jong Nam, the outcast older sibling of North Korea's ruler, Kim Jong-un, VX nerve agent was detected on Kim Jong Nam's eyes and face, according to Malaysian police.

Malaysian authorities are planning on sweeping the global airport and other locations for radioactive material, the police chief said, after it was confirmed Kim was killed by a VX nerve agent, a highly toxic chemical.

North Korea has also accused Malaysia of adopting an "unfriendly attitude" and collaborating with South Korea, who also believe their neighbour had Kim assassinated.

Kim Jong-nam, who had been living overseas for years, was approached by the two women on February 13 as he waited for a flight home to Macau.
