Malaysia says found out murdered Kim Jong Nam's identity from son's DNA

Malaysia says found out murdered Kim Jong Nam's identity from son's DNA

Jong-nam, the elder brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, is alleged to have been killed by two foreign women who swiped his face with the VX nerve agent while he was at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (klia2) on Feb 13 to take a flight to Macau.

Zahid said the authorities had traveled overseas to an undisclosed country to collect the DNA sample.

One suspect, Ri Jong Chol, a 46-year-old North Korean, was arrested on February 18, but was later released and deported by the Malaysian government on March 3 for lack of evidence tying him to the crime.

Deputy Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Noor Rashid Ibrahim said the next-of-kin of assassinated Kim Jong-nam had agreed to let the Malaysian government handle the body of the deceased.

Two women - Vietnamese Doan Thi Huang and Indonesian Siti Aisyah - have been arrested and charged with the murder.

Mr Kim's family have now given consent to Malaysia to decide what to do with his body, police in Kuala Lumpur said.

Speaking at the North Korean Embassy in Beijing, diplomat Pak Myong-ho blamed the United States and South Korea over the killing.

Tillerson Used Secret Alias to Talk Climate While CEO of Exxon
Schneiderman's office said that Tillerson used the " Wayne Tracker " alias from at least 2008 to 2015. "Mr. The letter asked the state court to instruct Exxon to disclose other email accounts used by Tillerson.

The decision to hold Kim Jong Nam's body - and conduct an autopsy - angered the North Koreans. "In the meantime, we have found that our people in North Korea are safe and there is nothing to worry (about)", said Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak yesterday.

Malaysian Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi says his body has been embalmed to prevent it from decomposing.

"The police will then take action based on that request". North Korea is not a member.

Earlier this month, Malaysia and North Korea banned each other's citizens from leaving.

In what may be the first comments by the family since Kim's death, a young man identifying himself as Han-Sol appeared in a video that circulated last week.

"With the Red Notice, we are hoping to get them via Interpol", he said, adding that the four are believed to be in Pyongyang.

Police are trying to trace seven North Korean suspects, four of whom left Malaysia on the day of the murder.
