Kim Jong-nam killed by VX nerve agent, say Malaysian police
Kim Jong-nam was killed using the highly toxic liquid nerve agent VX, Malaysian police have said. One of the two women suspected of involvement in the poisoning vomited in police custody and was also suffering the effects of VX, which is only usually used in chemical warfare, the inspector general, Khalid Abu Bakar, said. The findings followed a preliminary analysis of swabs taken from the face and eyes of Kim, the half-brother of the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un. More items linked to the attack at Kuala Lumpur airport were still being analysed, police said.
