Police: Chemical weapon used to kill Kim Jong-nam

Friday, 24 February 2017

BEIJING – Malaysian police have established that the substance used to kill North Korean leader Kim Jong-un’s half-brother Kim Jong Nam was a chemical weapon known as “VX nerve agent,” Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Khalid Bin Abu Bakar said in a statement.

The “VX nerve agent” has been listed as a chemical weapon by the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) and is classified as a weapon of mass destruction by the United Nations.

Kim Jong Nam, the eldest son of North Korea’s late leader Kim Jong Il and older half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un was killed as he was preparing to board a flight to Macau on 13 February.

Earlier this week, ambassador of North Korea to Malaysia Kang Chol called for a joint Pyongyang-Kuala Lumpur investigation into the murder of Kim Jong Nam, however, on Wednesday, Malaysian police said Kuala Lumpur opposed a joint investigation and called on Pyongyang to transfer 4 suspects in Kim’s killing.
