Did North Korean leader kill his brother?

South Kores Intelligence Agency intercepted a message to North Korean security services where the North Korean leader Kim Jong Un told them: I can't stand him - get rid of him.

VX nerve agent on North Korea’s brothers face ! Courts Chemist says Kim had 1.4 times lethal dosage of VX on his face.
A government chemist says the estranged half brother of North Korea’s leader had about 1.4 times the lethal dosage of VX nerve agent on his face after he was attacked at a Malaysian airport terminal. Pure VX was on Kim Jong Nam’s body, in his eye and in his blood plasma, government chemist Raja Subramaniam said at the murder trial. Raja described the lethal potential of VX.
He said animal studies showed the lethal dosage is 0.142 milligrams per kilogram of body weight, and that 50 percent of the tested population will die when exposed to this dosage on their skin.
Raja estimated the concentrate on Kim’s facial skin was 0.2 milligram per kilogram of body weight.

Asked if the VX concentrate found on Kim’s face was enough to kill him, Raja said:
“I can’t give a direct answer on this. Based on concentrate estimate, it is about 1.4 times the lethal dosage.”
He said the VX concentrate estimated on Kim’s eye was only 0.03 milligrams per kilogram of his body weight, but that correlated to VX penetrating faster through the eye than through the skin.
Pure VX was found on Kim’s face, in his eye and his blood plasma.
It was also on the collar and sleeves of his blazer, probably because Kim wiped his face on his blazer after the attack, Raja said.
Defense attorneys were cross-examining the chemist.
His earlier testimony about finding VX on the women’s clothing was the first evidence linking VX to the two suspects.
Their attorneys have said the women were duped by suspected North Korean agents, or are agents.


KUALA LUMPUR — Malaysian police said Friday (Feb 24) that the half brother of North Korea's leader who was killed in a Kuala Lumpur airport more than a week ago had a nerve agent on his eye and his face.

A statement Friday from the inspector general of police said that a preliminary analysis from the Chemistry Department of Malaysia identified the agent as "VX nerve agent".

According to an agency source, the Malaysian police had seized an undisclosed number of chemicals from a condominium in Jalan Klang Lama in the country on Wednesday. The Star newspaper reported that the authorities had also arrested a Malaysian man suspected to be involved in the alleged assassination, as well as recovered chemistry equipment and protective gear from the condominium.

“Police are not ruling out the possibility that the Malaysian man might have expertise in chemistry,” a source was quoted as saying.

One of two women suspected of killing the half-brother of North Korea's leader with the highly toxic VX nerve agent also suffered its effects, Malaysia's police chief said.

"She was vomiting," Mr Khalid Abu Bakar said in response to a question about whether the women felt the effects of VX, classified as a weapon of mass destruction by the United Nations. He declined to elaborate.

Police had said earlier that the two attackers rubbed a liquid on Kim Jong Nam's face before walking away and quickly washing their hands. He sought help from airport staff but died before he reached the hospital.

Mr Bruce Goldberger, a leading toxicologist who heads the forensic medicine division at the University of Florida, said some protective measures must have been in place if the women handled the substance without gloves.

"It's also possible that the toxin was encapsulated, then activated when applied to the skin," he said before the latest police statement. "As additional information is provided to the media by the police, it seems more likely that a new or modified chemical or biological agent was utilized in the attack."

Malaysia's police chief said on Thursday that investigators want to question a North Korean embassy official about Kim Jong Nam's death, saying he should cooperate if he has nothing to hide despite having diplomatic immunity.

Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar said police have also asked Interpol to issue an alert for four North Korean men who left Malaysia the same day Kim Jong Nam was attacked by the two women.

The four men are believed to be back in North Korea, but police also want to question three other people still in Malaysia, including Mr Hyon Kwang Song, a second secretary at the North Korean Embassy.

"The foreign officer has got immunity so we have to follow protocol," Mr Khalid told reporters. "If you have nothing to hide, you don't have to be afraid. You should cooperate."

Mr Khalid acknowledged that Malaysia would not be able to question Mr Hyon if the embassy exercises its immunity privileges.

North Korea's official, state-controlled media mentioned the case for the first time Thursday, saying Malaysia's investigation was full of "holes and contradictions" without acknowledging the victim was Kim Jong Nam.

The report from KCNA largely echoed past comments by North Korea's ambassador to Malaysia, but the publication of at least some news inside North Korea could be a sign of its concern over growing international speculation that Pyongyang dispatched a hit squad to kill Kim Jong Nam.

Long estranged from North Korea's leadership, Kim Jong Nam had lived outside the country for years, staying in Macau, Singapore and Malaysia.

What is the VX nerve agent used to kill Kim Jong Nam? A quick infographic:


No kids are running around with VX nerve agents playing tricks. This has to be from a government or a government-related. Not even IS or Syria has VX in use, by the way. Not as we seen so far.
