    Malaysia: The chemical substance used in the killing of the North Korean leader’s half-brother has been identified as a nerve agent. Malaysian police said Kim Jong-nam was poisoned at Kuala Lumpur airport after two women wiped a toxin on his face.

     

    The VX nerve agent was found on his face and is classified as a weapon of mass destruction by the United Nations. Malaysia has not blamed the North Korean state for the death, but said North Koreans were clearly behind it. Several North Koreans are wanted in connection with his death.
