The body of Kim Jong-Nam, half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-UN, who was killed last month, was identified using a DNA sample of one of his children, said Malaysian authorities on Wednesday.
13 Feb Kim Jong-Nam, was killed in the attack, said Prime Minister Najib Razak. Kim was at the international airport of Kuala Lumpur, intending to go to Macau, when two women sprayed him in the face extremely lethal paralytic agent VX, which killed him in 20 minutes.
And South Korea, and Malaysia accused Pyongyang of Kim's murder. North Korea strongly denies the allegation. The Malaysian authorities have not publicly identified the body of Kim until recently, after obtaining a DNA sample "from the child of the deceased", - said on Wednesday the Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.
He declined to specify how they were obtained a DNA sample. It is assumed that Kim's family is hiding. His son, Kim Han Sol, had appeared publicly for the first time after the death of his father last week in a 40-second video posted online by a group Cheollima Civil Defense.
The decision to conduct the autopsy angered the North Koreans. They demanded the body of the deceased and said that Malaysia needs to pass him because he was a citizen of North Korea. This diplomatic row was crowned culminating in both countries, issuing double the travel ban: the Malaysians were not allowed to leave North Korea, and North Koreans could not travel out of Malaysia.
9 Malaysians are in North Korea. It's unclear how many North Koreans in Malaysia, but according to the police, 3 people need to question about the murder of Kim hiding in the Embassy of North Korea in Kuala Lumpur.
